The first problem is that more then ~50% of PC sales are digital and none of the digital distributors publish their numbers.

The second problem is that game publishers usually don't publish their numbers. Unless a game sold very well (above 2 millions in the first week).

The third problem is that game sales figures that you can find easily usually come from NDP. They are US only, don't have access to digital numbers and they mostly use box shipped to count sales.
