Each week, gamers around the world log onto digital distribution platform Steam, to get their latest gaming fix, and every week, Player Attack lets you know which games were the most popular.
Let’s deal with the obvious thing first up. Well, okay, maybe the second obvious thing – firstly we must congratulate Bethesda on another great launch, with Fallout 4 topping the charts in the first week that gamers can actually play it. But that was somewhat expected, right?
The bit that’s less expected – and less easy to explain – is quite why Call of Duty: Black Ops III is in the charts twice. Apparently the new one from Treyarch has sold enough to appear at both #2 and #4 – and yes, from what we can see, it’s exactly the same version of the game. No special editions, no shiny bonuses, no bundles. It’s just the same game, in the charts, twice over. And maybe it is that good! We’re not sure what 2+4 is in this instance, but maybe it adds up to “almost as good as Fallout 4 but not quite”. And given the competition, that’s a pretty good effort.
