As predicted, September has proven to be a quiet period for new releases on the North American PC market, with the only new titles in the top ten being expansion packs. The Sims 2 Nightlife has crashed straight into the number one spot, while the EverQuest expansion Depths of Darkhollow has beaten the EverQuest II equivalent Desert of Flames in the rankings, with the latter charting at only number eleven. Sandwiched between these two was real-time strategy expansion Winter Assault. Outside of the top ten, the expanded version of the year-old Xbox classic Fable: The Lost Chapters could only manage to get as high as number fourteen, while compilation SimCity 4 Deluxe entered at number nineteen. With more significant titles likely to appear in the October chart, such as Black & White 2, The Movies and F.E.A.R., the PC still has a reasonable line-up of titles for Christmas, even if forthcoming games such as Civilization IV and Age of Empires III do not quite have the massive visibility of last year’s Half-Life 2.
