  • Football Manager 2013 & FIFA 13 make a comeback on the PC & Mac charts.
  • BioShock Infinite is still #1 on the PS3 chart.
  • Just Dance 4 rocks the 1st place on the Wii chart.
  • Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D debuts at numero uno on the 3DS chart.
  • New Super Mario Bros. U stays on the Wii U chart.
  • Pokemon Black & White Version 2 get caught at #1 on the DS chart.
  • Lastly, Persona 4 Golden returns to #1 on the PS Vita chart.

PS: Since last month 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.
