Tonight the NPD Group released the video game sales figures for the U.S.. BioShock 2 and the Nintendo DS eked out wins.
The biggest surprise is probably Heavy Rain's sales. It was released on February 23rd in North America and it managed to get into the top 10 in less than a week. The reviews were strong but adventure games - er, interactive dramas - generally don't sell so hot.
(*includes CE, GOTY editions, bundles, etc. but not those bundled with hardware)
Compared to February 2009, hardware sales were down 20% and software was down 15%. The latter is a bit surprising, considering how stacked the early months of 2010 are with new releases.
