NPD Issues Corrected Top 10 PC Games of 2007

Gamedaily reports:

Yesterday Gamedaily provided you with the top 10 PC games for 2007, according to NPD data. Today, however, The NPD Group informed Gamedaily that they actually made an error with their chart. Below you will find the amended Top 10 PC games.

So what's changed? The Sims 2 has jumped up to third place with many more units sold, while Call of Duty 4 drops from fourth to fifth. Also, The Sims 2 Bon Voyage Expansion Pack drops to tenth while the The Sims 2 Pets Expansion Pack is no longer in the top 10. Age of Empires III moves up from ninth to seventh and MS Flight Simulator X now makes an appearance in ninth. The problem appears to have stemmed from the exclusion of Deluxe and Gold versions on certain titles – you'll notice several more asterisks now.

Why are the numbers so low? Console games like COD4 and Halo 3 both sold over 7 million. I just assumed PC games would be higher since every has a PC. I guess I was way off.

PC gaming is dying.
80% of the people who play on PC play pirated versions.
10% of the remaining 20% cant handle the games on their PC.

10% left who actually buy the games.

well most the good pc games require some pretty heavy duty pc set ups, ram, good Graphic card, etc.

Like half of those games you can get on consoles, without doing any upgrading other than just buying the game, where you might have to do so with PC.

where is the rest of the world sales? Americans are famous for not buying many pc games. Would be interesting knowing the rest of the world sales.
