Rise of Nations and PlanetSide make their debut on NPD's latest top-10 chart.
There are a few new faces on the latest PC sales chart from NPD, which dates from the week that Rise of Nations and PlanetSide were released. Both of these high-profile games make an appearance on the chart in their first week, bumping off a few of the familiar names, including EA's best-selling Command & Conquer: Generals, which was solidly in sixth position the previous week. Two steady sellers have also jumped back into the top-10 spotlight: Sim City 4 and Warcraft III.
