DualShockers writes: "The past month and a half has gone by so fast for gamers with the release of heavyweight titles like MAG and Mass Effect 2, it is easy to forget that December was just a blink away not too long ago. Although many titles that were expected to release this holiday season didn't, that didn't stop December 2009 from being a record-breaking month for gaming. I'm talking epic! To the ring of $5,290,000,000 (a.k.a. 5.29b for Billion) worth of sales in computer and video games for the month alone!"
