Weekly PC Sales: Spore Takes Three Slots, Crysis Hangs in There and EA Keeps Dominating

Though EA Maxis' Spore magically appeared on sales charts before its official release, this week's data from marketing research firm NPD Group unsurprisingly puts the highly-anticipated PC evolution simulator in the top slots.

The below data--culled from United States retailers across the week of September 7-13, 2008--also continues publisher EA's domination of the weekly PC software charts, with the company's titles representing 60% of the list for the second week in a row.

  1. Spore / EA Maxis / $49 (Average)
  2. Spore Galactic Edition / EA Maxis / $78 (Average)
  3. The Sims 2 Apartment Life Expansion Pack / EA Maxis / $30 (Average)
  4. Spore Creature Creator / EA Maxis / $9 (Average)
  5. World Of Warcraft: Battle Chest / Blizzard / $40 (Average)
  6. The Sims 2 Double Deluxe / EA Maxis / $30 (Average)
  7. World Of Warcraft / Blizzard / $20 (Average)
  8. World Of Warcraft: Burning Crusade Expansion Pack / Blizzard / $30 (Average)
  9. Warcraft III Battle Chest / Blizzard / $39 (Average)
  10. Crysis / Crytek (Publisher: EA) / $39 (Average)

    I was surprised that I couldn't find the latest Nancy Drew game in stores today despite it being a top seller a couple of months ago.

    I guess I'll have to order from amazon.ca and pay almost as much as the game itself for next day shipping.
