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.
