NPD January 2010: NSMBW tops Mass Effect 2 on software charts

Thursday, 11th February 2010 23:36 GMT By Stephany Nunneley


NPD has released the software figures for January 2010, and it looks like New Super Mario Bros. Wii beat out Mass Effect 2 by around 84K units, with 656.7K units sold.

However, you have to take into consideration that Mass Effect 2 was only out for six days in January, so those are still fantastic numbers.

In all, software sales came in at $597.9 million for the month compared to $682.6 million last year, which is a 12 percent drop.

Here’s the full thing:

  1. New Super Mario Bros. (Wii) – 656.7K
  2. Mass Effect 2 (360) – 572.1K
  3. Wii Fit w/Balance Board (Wii) – 555.7K
  4. Modern Warfare 2 (360) – 326.7K
  5. Mario Kart w/Wheel (Wii) – 310.9K
  6. Sports Resort w/WMP (wii) – 297.6K
  7. Modern Warfare 2 (PS3) – 259.0K
  8. Army of Two: The 40th Day (360) – 246.5K
  9. Just Dance (Wii) – 191.9K
  10. Darksiders (360) – 171.2k

    Seems portly Americans like dancing too. I’m trying really hard not to imagine that.

    I wish Bayonetta did better. Too bad for me I guess. :-(

    I wonder where it ended up though.

    I’ve been trying to find out the numbers for that and MAG, but for some reason leaks have been non-existent so far.

    We know this so far for Bayonetta…

    360 Bayonetta < 135,000
    PS3 Bayonetta < 64,000

    64,000 would put it lower than MadWorld’s first month of sales, and that was already pretty poor…

    It’s not a pretty outcome, that’s for sure.

    I’m kind of surprised to see Bayonetta as low as that, I was under the impression that it had had more exposure than Darksiders.
