Then he shouldn't have wrote an article titled "The 10 Highest Selling PC Games of All Time".

I think you should of used steamspy(for at least steam only games), cs:go almost has 28 mil

Razzer1163d ago

They are only counting physical sales.

Razzer1163d ago

Retail sales? Of PC games? LOL

The number 1 spot genuinely surprised me, especially as it was cross platform.
