PC Digital Download Sales 9/12/10

Week 3 of the Digital Download Sales is here, and Civilization V is still selling very, very well. Steam and Direct2Drive both show a lot of love for Sid Meier this week, but as usual Steam has a better deal, so the sales for Civilization are not  surprising on Steam. 

Steam Top 10 

1) Blood Bowl Dark Elves Edition - $10 [-75%]

2) Sid Meier's Civilization V - $49.99

3) R.U.S.E. - $49.99

4) Recettar: An Item Shop's Tale - $19.99

2) Sid Meier's Civilization V - $49.95

3) Dragon Age: Origins Awakening - $29.95

4) Dragon Age: Origins Digital Deluxe Edition - $39.95

5) R.U.S.E. - $49.95

6) Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 - $59.95

7) Civilization IV: The Complete Edition - $39.95

10) The Lord of the Rings Online VIP Starter Pack - $19.95

Now there's one game per list that makes me wonder why the heck they are there. On Steam, there's Recettar: An Item Shop's Tale, which is an indie RPG, a genre I've never seen sell on Steam before. I mean indie platformers or RTS's are fine, but indie RPGs? On Direct2Drive, The Lord of the Rings VIP Starter Pack sold for some reason. The game's been out for about 3 years now, and now that it is Free-to-play people are rushing to pay for VIP starter packs. Pretty strange. The stuff I was saying about pairs of sales on Direct2Drive seems to be panning out this week as well, with Civilization IV and V selling, and Dragon Age Origins and Awakening selling. Everything else seems pretty standard this week. Blood Bowl didn't sell before, and won't sell again after this week, R.U.S.E. is holding up better than expected, and Battlefield will never leave the top 10 list ever.
