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.

Quoting myself from the prediction thread

I was expecting Lego to be higher.
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.

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

20% growth would put PS4 right at X360's third year January.

X1 seemingly is not even touching the PS3's third year January.

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.
