MCV Feature: UK February Charts analysis

MCV writes: "February is usually a quiet month in games – but not this year, with the likes of Devil May Cry 4, Turok and Mario and Sonic falling into consumer hands. Christopher Dring takes a look.

"If you look at the Total Software by Label/Company charts you will see that there is a disparity between the units sold by Nintendo and the value this month.

"The reason behind this difference is partly due to Wii Play. Wii Play always shifts a lot of units (All Formats number three in February), however, we split the controller and game up when working out the value, with the remote retaining its full price."

The story is too old to be commented.

PS3 - 17.1%
PC - 15.2%
PS2 - 4.1%
