So far this year we’ve had a new #1 every week. Last week it was LittleBigPlanet 2; this week it’s Dead Space 2. The original only managed to get to #6 in the chart, so well done EA. I think this proves that games can sell well even in the dark and depressing month of January.

Art Academy – which made the list of top 5 best selling DS games of 2010 – is back in the top 10 at #9 up from #15. Kinect Sports drops from #8 to #12 while Call of Duty: Black Ops is now at #5 – the “lowest” it has ever been in the chart. I dare say it’ll rise again though.

DC Universe Online has left the top 40 already and there’s still no sign of Square-Enix’s Mindjack in any of the charts despite there plenty of copies on the shelves.
