Weekly PC Sales: Can Nothing Stop The Sims?

For the third week straight, NPD's list of the best-selling PC games at United States retailers features the exact same titles, just in a slightly different order than before.

During the week of December 21-27, 2008, The Sims 2 and The Sims 2 Apartment Life Expansion jumped up two spots, with The Sims 2 Mansion & Garden Stuff and World of Warcraft Battle Chest gaining a position too. Conversely, Call of Duty, Left 4 Dead, Spore and Bejeweled Twist all came in a number or two lower than they did last week.

With The Sims 3 due in February, it's a safe bet that the series won't go away soon.
