Looks like a pretty slow month for Nintendo. Their consoles are at the bottom of the hardware race, and they didn’t have any interesting exclusives come out that breached the top 10. I would say Just Dance 3 would change that, but that’s now multi-platform. Still, I’m sure that most of the sales will be on the Wii. Besides that, I’m a bit surprised that Gears of War 3 didn’t manage to top Madden NFL 12 in sales. It must have come out really late in the sales period.
