The NPD Group has released the latest 360 software sales figures for the U.S.A., and there are a couple of surprises in there. While no one's going to be confused by a top three consisting of GTAIV, Call of Duty IV and Madden, the games in fourth and fifth place are Ubisoft's Rainbow Six Vegas 2 and Army of Two, respectively. If nothing else this comprehensively proves that Americans really, really like guns.
But it also proves that in the face of being the only new franchise in the top five and receiving merely good-to-average review scores, Army of Two still went on to sell some 900,000 copies in the US. Our guess is that to some the lure of co-op is so strong it makes the game itself seem like virtual wrapping paper. Brr.
