I hope your number for Phantasy Star Portable is right. That would be double our current numbers!

Numbers generally seem quite low - but then there is a 'recession' and this might be the quietest month this year.

Still, with so many 'big' releases out - have to wonder how April is going to do.

Nocturnal is helping companies get cheaper game ratings in Australia:

I'm quite surprised that such a quiet month generated so much controversy. I guess Sony releasing that "over 1 million Kilzone 2 copies" statement helped with the fanboy fights that followed. Can't wait for the April result with virtually no good game on the HD twins going against the DSi launch.

Observations based on TheSources sales list:

GTA: Chinatown wars was the top non-Nintendo Portable game this month.

Killzone killed CoD:WaW sales on the PS3. 360 COD sales stayed the sale. PS3 sales died.

Lego Star Wars has some amazing legs for Nintendo systems. (#4 Wii, #6 DS)
