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
