On one hand, January 2010 was a boring month, but on the other it was quite an eye opener.

The PlayStation Portable and PlayStation 2 sales were poor. The PSP desperately needs a price cut and the PS2 seems to be finally dying off.

On the software front, I’m very pleased that Mass Effect 2 did as well as it did with 572, 100 worth of sales; that’s within four days. Unsurprisingly, neither Bayonetta or MAG made it into the top 10. One is really tough to market and the other entered a very tough market.
