    Would it be possible to get the NPD sales figures for PC-games? VoodooExtreme posts the best-sellers every week but they can't include any figures.

    Those numbers for half life 2 seem to be wrong, they sold around 1.5 million copies(last time I read could be more now).

    Remember that's 2004 sales only. It may kosher, but it does seem to be a bit off, as they announced 1.7 million sales at the end of January, and it seems unlikely to me that they would have sold 700k more in that month alone.

    Still, it would be nice to see more figures. Especially Steam sales.

    NPD is unreliable for PC sales. I've always heard they underestimate them. But it's the only numbers we have, so what can you do?

    I'm certain it doesn't include any sales through downloads, such as the Steam sales of HL 2.
