January’s sales data for North America didn’t include Final Fantasy XIII-2 because the game released at the very end of the month, after the tracking period for January had already ended. Instead, we see XIII-2 in the software sales chart for February. Square Enix’s RPG took the #2 spot, although #1 still belongs to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3.
Soulcalibur V made it into the top-10 as well, at the #7 position, as did the new Twisted Metal for PlayStation 3 at #9.
The complete top-20 chart for the period covering January 29th – February 25th was as follows:
|01.||Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3||PS3, 360, Wii, PC||Activision Blizzard|
|02.||Final Fantasy XIII-2||PS3, 360||Square Enix|
|03.||UFC Undisputed 3||PS3, 360,||THQ|
|04.||Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning||PS3, 360, PC||Electronic Arts|
|05.||Just Dance 3||PS3, 360, Wii||Ubisoft|
|06.||NBA 2K12||PS3, 360, Wii, PC, PSP, PS2||Take Two|
|07.||Soul Calibur V||PS3, Xbox 360||Namco Bandai|
|08.||The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim||PS3, 360, PC||Bethesda Softworks|
|10.||Battlefield 3||PS3, 360, PC||Electronic Arts|
Food for thought:
1. While they weren’t in the top-10, Mario Kart 7 and Super Mario 3D Land each sold over 100,000 copies in February. They’re now at 1.85 million and 1.45 million respectively, in North America.
2. The PlayStation Vita launched on February 22nd, three days before the tracking period for Feb ended. While it isn’t in the top-10, Uncharted: Golden Abyss was present in the top-20, and was the best-selling Vita game for the month.
2. Hopefully, we’ll get to find out how Resident Evil: Revelations did at some point, too.
