The latest sales reports are in and there are some surprises if you start looking into the charts.
First of Fallout 3 has broken through the 2 million barrier worldwide, Fable 2 is sitting on just over 2.5 million and LittleBigPlanet has had a late surge after the holiday season and is now also sitting over 2 million which is truly fantastic to see.
However there is a surprising little nugget in the sales chart and that is that Call of Duty World at War has now outsold Gears of War 2 on the Xbox 360.
Gears 2 has sold an impressive 4,553,629 units while COD WaW on the 360 has sold 4,764,9779 units.
Which just goes to show that I am a terrible predictor of sales and Treyarch are justified in their pre-game statements about how great the game is.
Now just to get my hands on itâ€¦
In hardware news the Wii is still top even after having a terrible week in comparison, the 360 outsold the PS3 by a considerable margin and in the handheld stakes the DS is still the dominant console.
Wii – 515,612
360 – 219,790
PS3 – 149,435
DS – 524,155
PSP – 198,405
