In fact, Wii and DS sales were so strong in December, they surpassed the PS2's best-selling month. Although Nintendo stole the spotlight, the PS3 broke its personal sales record, and the video game industry as a whole witnessed its biggest sales month ever, beating last December's figures by 4%.
Software fared well last year, with Modern Warfare 2 (combined SKUs) topping console sales. New Super Mario Bros. Wii, Wii Fit Plus, Wii Sports Resort, Wii Play, Mario Kart, Assassin's Creed II, Left 4 Dead 2, and Mario and Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story also made the top ten list.
The top list of PC game sales in 2009 isn't entirely surprising: The Sims 3, WoW: Wrath of the Lich King, The Sims 3 Double Deluxe, WoW: Battle Chest, Modern Warfare 2, The Sims 3: World Adventures, Spore, Dragon Age: Origins, Empire: Total War.
