Um... wow at Dead Space 2. It nearly beat Just Dance 2. Just goes to show there's a market beyond casual gaming. Third party is here to stay.

1 - Call of Duty: Black Ops (360, PS3, WII, NDS, PC), Activision Blizzard

These two doesn't deserve to be on the chart.

It is impressive IMO
that PS3 exclusives are making it to the top 10 of the chart, considering that it has the least amount of console sales.

Good going

lol vgc overtracked 360 again they have had 360 at around 110-130k sales for the past few weeks and in case you cant do maths that actually is more than 381k and its more than a 10% error margin, if you work it out and be nice and only divide 381k / 4 you get an average of 95.25k sales, if you be horrible because there actually is 5 weeks in january 381k / 5 = 76.2k per week, vgc are a joke

I love you Cat!

Happy sony fanboy day! How fitting is it that my 30 day ban ended on this exact date. Lets all take a moment of our time to remember the sony soldiers who fought bravely in the fanboy war of 2007. My thoughts are with you.
