PC download charts: Quakecon, Skyrim

Quakecon, hosted by Id Software of
Quake fame, sees its 2011 bargain bundle go straight into Steam's download chart at number one.
The pack contained 34 games and expansions from Id and sister studio Bethesda and was available for four days only.
Bethesda's ambitious adventure Skyrim and Id's new shooter RAGE were also listed for pre-orders as Quakecon got under way.
Chart entries on Direct2Drive and Impulse are both boosted by sale prices in reaction to news of sequels and expansions: Borderlands in the wake of a Borderlands 2 announcement, and Two Worlds II prior to September's expansion Pirates of the Flying Fortress.
