After a busy month of new releases in the October U.S. PC charts, there has been much fewer new PC titles in November, with little other movement in the top ten bar the sudden rise of Call of Duty 2
to the number one position. This is in part due to its release at the very end of October, as well as strong marketing for the Xbox 360 version.
The highest new entry for the North American PC market was the more console orientated Star Wars: Battlefront II
at number four, with Battlefield 2
expansion pack Special Forces
at number ten.
Outside of the top ten movie license Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire
entered at number eleven, with The Sims 2 Holiday Edition
(which contains both the original game and the Christmas themed mini-expansion) at number twelve. Lionhead Studiosí The Movies
, meanwhile, made a disappointing new entry at number fifteen.
