January 2011 NPD numbers are utterly meaningless

February 23, 2011 News No Comments

Handhelds, where are you?

NPD’s monthly video game sales stats for January are here, such as they are. We’ve gone several months without PSP numbers, but we already knew that system was selling at such a low level as to be fairly meaningless in the breakdown of the monthly pie-chart. This month, however, we have been robbed of the DS number as well, which makes it look like Nintendo only occupies a third of the market, instead of the half or so that they actually do.

Anyway, the Wii sold 319K, the 360 sold 381K, and the PS3 sold 267K.

In software, Call of Duty: Black Ops was on top again, but we don’t know exactly how many were sold, or for what systems. Just Dance 2 for Wii took second and Dead Space 2 took third with 452K sold across 360, PS3, and PC.
