    • Dead Space 3 becomes top dog on the Xbox 360 chart.
    • Crysis 3 takes first place on the PC chart.
    • Just Dance 4 dances to 1st place on the Wii chart.
    • Fire Emblem: Awakening jumps on the 3DS chart at numero uno.
    • Pokémon Black & White Version 2 reappear as #1 on the DS chart.
    • New Super Mario Bros. U remains a bestseller on the Wii U chart.
    • Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time is 1st on the PS Vita chart.
    • Lastly, The Sims 3: Generations takes first place on the Mac chart.

    Sorry folks, PS2 & PSP game sales are no longer being tracked. But for years now 90% of the time they consisted out of all the Kingdom Hearts games appearing on the #1 spot on both classic PlayStation platforms, so it’s not like you’re missing out with no new games being released for them anymore.
