Aliens Vs. Predator has soared to the top of the PC weekly chart in its first week on sale.

The Sega FPS is followed by The Sims 3, which moves up to second, and Football Manager 2010, which drops to third.

At the tail end of the chart, World Of Warcraft expansion pack Wrath Of The Lich King makes a healthy three place gain to seven, below Modern Warfare 2 and last week's number one BioShock 2.

The top ten in full:

1. (-) Aliens Vs. Predator (Sega)
2. (3) The Sims 3 (Electronic Arts)
3. (2) Football Manager 2010 (Sega)
4. (4) The Sims 3: World Adventures (Electronic Arts)
5. (1) BioShock 2 (2K Games)
6. (8) Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 (Activision)
7. (10) World Of Warcraft: Wrath Of The Lich King (Activision)
8. (6) Mass Effect 2 (Electronic Arts)
9. (5) Star Trek Online (Atari)
10. (9) Dragon Age: Origins (Electronic Arts)

Well I'd imagine any new PC game with any sort of marketing would out sell anything old.

This is the PC we're talking about.  #1 is the equivalent of, like, 600 copies at this point with all the fucking piracy out there.
