Was Dying Light out in January or February last year?

Surprised at the Lego rankings. Typically it sells best on older consoles, no? Maybe the transition to the new generation is damn near done.

One more thing on the Lego rankings -- perhaps the little temporary exclusive bits worked.

Unsurprising month

PS4 top console

Games with hardware bundles for one platform sold better individually than the other.

FIFA Madden GTAV and Minecraft.

January is zzzzzz

What's up with Lego selling more on PS4? Xbox and Wii usually have the family games market.

Not surprised to see Lego performing better on PS4 and One, it was the same on Amazon. Wondering how sales will look in the next months: Lego Jurassic Park saw big changes in the SKU between first and second month.

I dunno about that. It was the sole big new release for the month, and it came underneath eight games that have been out for months, even years. It might have legs, but it's not an encouraging placing.

For real taking in everything. Sony should lock down GTA marketing and COD marketing for the entire gen.

I am getting legit scared of GTA at this point. Minecraft is scary as well. Lego selling more on PS4 is surprising.

To repeat from last thread (these are assumed/guesses):

WiiU forgot a zero in its other pants in its attempt to reach the Wii's third year January.

Also, though relative, isn't LEGO low? Its was the only big release on the month and its barely in the Top 10.
