Weekly PC Sales: Nancy Drew Returns with Valor

By Chris Faylor, Apr 22, 2009 8:04am PDT It's been five months since one of Her Interactive's Nancy Drew games broke into the top ten, but the prodigal daughter has returned thanks to a cheap jewel case edition.

While Direct2Drive's top ten downloads packs several of that week's new releases, including The Chronicles of Riddick, only Company of Heroes: Tales of Valor managed to appear on both D2D's chart and NPD's list of top-selling games at US retailers.

It was also a week for returning vets, with Left 4 Dead and the StarCraft Battle Chest both re-appearing on NPD's weekly list, and Universe at War hitting D2D's due to a sale.

NPD's Top Ten (4/5 - 4/11)

  1. World Of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King / Blizzard / $36
  2. The Sims 2 Double Deluxe / EA Maxis / $20
  3. Company of Heroes: Tales of Valor / Relic / $29
  4. World Of Warcraft Battle Chest / Blizzard / $35
  5. Empire: Total War / Creative Assembly / $50
  6. Left 4 Dead / Valve / $31

  8. The Sims 2 Apartment Life Exp. Pack / EA Maxis / $20
  9. World Of Warcraft / Blizzard / $20
  10. Nancy Drew: Ghost Dogs of Moon Lake / Her Interactive / $7

Direct2Drive's Top Ten (4/6 - 4/12)
