January was chock full of great releases, but who “won” the unusually jam-packed month? Well, you might be tempted to say “gamers,” since our plates were full all month long.

But you’d be wrong. Mass Effect 2 definitely won. No question.

According to a report by DFC Intelligence (as posted on Industry Gamers), BioWare’s galaxy-spanning role-player moved 1,100,000 units in January. Its nearest competitor, Army of Two: The 40th Day, tallied up a comparitively miniscule 175,000. Sorry, boys. No fist-bumps today.

The rest of DFC’s estimates (on the Xbox 360) are as follows:

  • Bayonetta: 170,000
  • Blood Bowl: 9,000
  • Dark Void: 22,000
  • Darksiders: 150,000
  • Divinity 2: Eco Draconis: 25,000
  • Vancouver 2010: 8,000

So, what’d you fine folks drop your hard-earned coin on last month?
