Very interested to see how MK8 and Wolfenstein performed overall. I really hope that Wolfenstein sold good enough to ensure some safe future years for Machinegames since their approach to the FPS genre is something that should be rewarded.

Uh...wow at MLB above Wolfenstein. Really didn't expect that.

Kirby's another decent surprise. The bottom half could just have low numbers all around though.

I love that Kirby made the top 10. Seeing it at #1 for so many weeks in Japan made me wonder if it would have a similar reception in the US. I guess this is a good game for Kirby with good timing.

MLB did better than i would've expected.

Why are people surprised at MLB sales? It does well on PS3 every year so it's not surprising. And this top ten is combined so it doesn't really tell each sale of individual platforms.

Yeah I guess Borderlands 2 Vita flopped. Couldn't even chart with bundles and new hardware. Shame.

Big YoY bump across the board.


Was nothing out last April? I guess maybe since it was the planned GTA release month everyone got out of the way and then when GTA was delayed it was a super dead month?

Kirby really is a silent performer. No one really pegs it as a decent seller, but it sells well and consistently.

Good to see that software sales are up 57% year over year. Hardware too, but thats to be expected with a new generation.

MK8 did great, it released at the end of the month on a very small install base. Well deserved, fantastic game.
