January NPD Sales Numbers Are In – Mass Effect 2 Kills

1 min read


The numbers are in for January and it’s easy to see that a ton of games were moved thanks to so many publishers holding their games out for the first quarter of 2010.

Of those games, the most impressive of the lot is Mass Effect 2, which we already reported as outselling everything else 6-1. While only having a couple of days worth of sales in January, Mass Effect 2 managed to plant itself firmly in second place with only New Super Mario Brothers Wii able to beat it out for the number one spot.

While Nintendo is still selling bucket loads of consoles, Microsoft managed to move 332,800 consoles compared to the Playstation 3’s 276,900, putting the Xbox 360 in second place for consoles and third overall.

        because some people just need to know that some one else has a smaller appendage than them.

    Since we are stirring the pot today did anyone else notice the PS3 only had one game in the top 10?

    This obviously proves that the Wii is the best console on the market and Wii Fit is one of the best gaming experiences every made… obviously
