Wrath of the Lich King Leads PC Sales

KOTAKU.com - Now that the holidays are over, it's time to check the stats as PC gaming stays ahead of the pack.

As usual, Blizzard finds a way to absolutely dominate sales with their newest expansion to the World of Warcraft franchise. Rather shocking to see despite many reports of it being the "most pirated game of 2008," EA's Spore lands at second with some strong holiday sales.

  Sales Charts Dec. 14-20, 2008

    1. World Of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King
    2. Spore
    3. Left 4 Dead
    4. The Sims 2 Double Deluxe
    5. Call Of Duty: World At War
    6. Fallout 3
