XCOM sales flounder on consoles, win on PC

The UK All Formats sales chart has materialised, as it does this time every week. FIFA has settled in at the front, and Pokemon dominates the top ten. And although PCGamesN favourite Dishonored skulks proudly in second place, XCOM: Enemy Unknown sweats behind cover at #7.

An altogether disappointing result for developers Firaxis. But not so on Steam, where XCOM pins down the competition from its vantage point at the very peak of the Top Sellers list.

What does this mean? Well, it means that the bulk of XCOM’s fanbase is located precisely where its legacy is: on PC.
