Where are you guys seeing these numbers?



Good for Left 4 Dead though. Seems that it's catching on quite nicely which is very surprising considering what it had to compete with. Gears of War 2 though out of the top 10 though.



Vgchartz overtracked all systems quite lot.



Around the Network

Most hardware only 10% above NPD, PSP farther out than that.

Left4Dead undertracked, I guess.

WTF Lord of the Rings PS3?

Wii > PS3 + 360 + PS2 (or PSP, depending on what you want to put in)

Well...




Wii fit outsold the wii :D!


I dunno if I should use: "I blame Wii fit"

or: "Wii is supply-constrained"

or: "Wii-fad is over!"
