Great numbers all around pretty much. Higher than expected hardware sales definitely.

Great job, Capcom, SFIV in Feb, and RE5 in March. Way to dominate the start of '09!

Wildcard berths that can't beat teams without a winning record should have homefield advantage

Maybe I should finally buy SFIV.

Apparently everybody else has.

Wow, almost 400K for the 360 in February. I wonder why. Great number anyway considering last Feb. they did 250. Big year-over-year gains. Price!

I know the media goes Nintendo crazy for sales, but to be honest the 360 and PS3 aren't doing too bad either.

I mean...this is Feb. A 400 dollar PS3 shifted 276K units and the 360 hit 391K, which is crazy. I think the 360 is starting to break through into the next level now.

Pretty good 360 sales, and Wii sales are just :eek: :eek:

Pretty cool to see SF4 up there in software as well, I'm really enjoying it (in a casual, what-the-fuck is FADC? sort of way



Now how many people are going to question Halo War's non-appearance? :p

Is it odd that I click the NPD threads to see Mama Robotnik's gifs rather than the actual results?

Great numbers for 360, I would have thought PS3 would have sold more considering they hype behind Killzone 2.

Totally predictable numbers. Wish I could see the top 10 for just DS games though.
The only thing predictable about the numbers were the positions of them. Each did a lot better then I expected.

And then there were the hardware sales. Also much higher then I expected.

Could it have actually been the Lost and the Damned? Because it sure as hell wasn't Halo Wars.

Hmmm...

Street Fighter 4 over 800K? OMG that is awesome!

Whoever said the fighter genre was dead or irrelevant needs to go back to their troll caves and hide.

SF better than expected.

MKDS/NSMB on top 10 lists in 2009. Jesus.

and KZ underwhelms. Sony has themselves to blame. They dropped the ball on the advertisement on that game.

Mario gets 3 out of the top 10 . . . the fat little plumber has really long legs.

Street Fighter blows away Killzone 2. Wow, the fighter genre is bigger than I thought.

The PS2 is finally starting to run out of steam. Last time I post this?:
