Here's another top selling list, this time on the PC side. Although there are no THQ games, I was astounded by #4. From FGN.ONLINE:
<<� Hunter II Blasts Charts
PC: Deer Hunter II from GT Interactive has come in top in the recently released top ten from PC Data. The popularity of abject animal massacre never ceases to amaze. Here's the list in full.
1. Deer Hunter II 3D (GT) 2. Links LS Golf '99 Upgrade (Access) 3. Diablo (Cendant) 4. Rugrats Adventure Game (Learning Co.) 5. Play With The Teletubbies (Cendant) 6. Civil War Generals 2 (Cendant) 7. Starcraft (Cendant) 8. Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six (Red Storm) 9. Barbie Nail Designer (Mattel) 10. Lego Island (Learning Company)>>
Rugrats for PC selling well???? I never would have imagined that PC games for the pre-teen set would sell so well, but there's a few others on the list as well (Lego, Teletubbies, Barbie).
Watch out for our Rugrats release! I think this one's going to do even better than I anticipated. I'll give early congratulations to the THQ crew on this one.
In anticipation of the Rugrats campaign, I picked up some March 30 calls yesterday, and I'm thinking about getting some for June now. With Revenge selling awesome, Rugrats and WCW for PC coming up, and with the reinvigoration of Gameboy sales through the color Gameboy, this quarter promises to be absolutely huge. Just imagine, in 3 months we're going to be talking about how we can top 4Q next year. I suspect that once we have some early returns on Rugrats, we'll see a few upgrades on quarterly estimates.
