Weekly PC Sales Illustrate Strength of Bonuses, Discounts and Exclusivity

The latest charts from PC outlets Steam, Direct2Drive and Impulse are in, once again speaking to the strength of exclusive offerings, pre-order bonuses and discounts. nope

No doubt propelled by the currently underway pre-order multiplayer beta, Battlefield: Bad Company 2 pre-orders once again topped the Steam charts, with bonus-filled Digital Deluxe Editions of Mass Effect 2 and Star Trek Online on all three charts.

Unsurprisingly, several games that were on sale across the past week--in particular Titan Quest Gold, Red Faction: Guerrilla and Majesty--also climbed the charts.

It's also worth noting that each chart has at least one game exclusive to the outlet, such as Modern Warfare 2 (Steam), Stargate Resistance (D2D) and Sins (Impulse).
