Weekly PC Sales: The Lich King Reclaims Its Throne, Left 4 Dead Rises and Call of Duty Falls

The latest PC sales figures from marketing research firm NPD Group are in, showing the ten most popular games at United States retailers from January 4-10, 2009.

After being dethroned by The Sims 2 Double Deluxe last week, World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King reassumed the top spot. Meanwhile, Left 4 Dead rose from #7 to #3, Call of Duty and Fallout 3 dropped a few spots, and Red Alert 3 reappeared, probably because of a lower price: $29 instead of the $49 it sold for across December.
