January 2012 NPD Results

Ready for something depressing? No? Well, ignore this story then. For everyone else, here's the sales results from the United States in this month's NPD report.

Firstly, not a single new release in January charted. Now this was to be expected for games that released at the end of the month like Final Fantasy XIII-2, SoulCalibur V, and Resident Evil: Revelations. Regardless, there's even more bad news. Industry-wide sales are worse than January 2004.

In good news, Saints Row: The Third keeps making money for the ailing THQ while Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure for the first time reaches the top ten. (It made eleventh place last October.) Then you have your regular crowd of games such as Call of Duty, Just Dance, Madden, Skyrim, and Mario Kart. To be honest, this has been one of the most boring months for NPD information in a long time.

Individual platform information will be posted as (and if) it comes.
