    I’d hazard a guess that 58% on 360 and 32% on PS3 means that PC retail sales are 10%, although the whole split thing is a tad misleading given that digital sales aren’t counted anyway.

    well PC versions will have been mostly online purchases via steam i reckon.

    No suprise there with Fifa staying at the top spot, Dark Souls really suprises me i didn’t expect that to touch the top 10 never mind the top 3.

    Expect Deus Ex to stay in the top 10 next week as Zavvi (and other online retailers will follow) have just dropped the price to £17.99.

    Go Dark Souls! Also, agreed with #4, Resistance 4 is a surprisingly good game. I kinda hated previous 2 Resistance games but this one is way more enjoyable and actually fun for me.
