Top Ten Games Of Jan. 2011 Revealed

The good folks at the NPD Group have just revealed the top telling games of January 2011.  Now that they don’t reveal actual numbers, and they combine SKUs it’s extremely hard to figure out just how well some games have sold.  That being said, here’s a quick look at the best selling games from the first month of the year.

01. Call of Duty: Black Ops (360, PS3, Wii, DS, PC) – Activision
02. Just Dance 2 (Wii) – Ubisoft
03. Dead Space 2 (360, PS3, PC) – EA
04. LittleBigPlanet 2 (PS3) – Sony
05. Zumba Fitness: Join the Party (Wii, 360, PS3) – Majesco
06. NBA 2K11 (360, PS3, PSP, Wii, PS2, PC) – Take-Two
07. Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood (360, PS3) – Ubisoft
08. Dance Central (360) – Microsoft
09. Michael Jackson: The Experience (Wii, DS, PSP) – Ubisoft
10. DC Universe Online (PS3, PC) – Sony

There’s some surprising games here.  Jackson’s game appears to have done fairly well for itself, as did Dance Central, DC Universe Online and LittleBigPlanet 2.  I really wanted to know how well EA’s Dead Space 2 sold because that game was superb.  I’m really shocked by the number two ranking game, Just Dance 2 because it pales in comparison to Dance Central. Then again…maybe I shouldn’t be saying that O_o

Not very much to add except that Black Ops is still brining in the dough.  This post was a good trial run to ensure everything was working with the site and to get some comments going.  What have you guys got to say about the latest sales?  I’ll update with console numbers if and when I get them.  I’ll also be sure to add my witty comments at that time ;)

    1. You have no idea how happy I am to see you comment here. I was getting extremely worried something went wrong with the comment transfers. Obviously we’re all good ;)

      Oh and it’s a real shame about Dance Central :-P
