Ubisoft must be rather happy, with three of January’s top-ten best-sellers in North America coming from them. Two of these were dance games, and there were a total of three dance titles in the top-ten chart overall.

 

While Just Dance 2 clung onto its #2 position from December, Michael Jackson: The Experience dropped a notch from #8 to #9. Meanwhile, Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood, which appeared in the top-ten for November but was kicked off in December, made its return at #4.

 

Sony, too, must be quite pleased, with both LittleBigPlanet 2 and DC Universe Online charting in January’s top-ten. Interestingly, Majesco, too, had a top-ten contender in the form of Zumba Fitness: Join the Party (pictured above).
