    Call Of Duty 4 Holds On To Top Spot In US Software Sales

    Infinity Ward does it again. After a spectacular November and December in the US of A, Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare sees a respectable January, securing the number one position on the software charts. 2007's number two seller, Wii Play, keeps its second place spot, beating out both Rock Band and Guitar Hero III with 298K copies sold.

    Despite being a relatively down month for the Wii and Xbox 360 on the hardware side, the two consoles hold the top seven on the software side. Again, no PlayStation 2 info, but we're not sure if that's based on sales or just missing data. The top ten is after this.

    01. Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare (Xbox 360) - 330,900
    02. Wii Play (Wii) - 298,100
    03. Guitar Hero III (Wii) - 239,600
    04. Rock Band (Xbox 360) - 183,800
    05. Guitar Hero III (Xbox 360) - 182,700
    06. Super Mario Galaxy (Wii) - 172,000
    07. Burnout Paradise (Xbox 360) - 144,100
    08. Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare (PS3) - 140,000
    09. Mario Party DS (DS) - 138,500
    10. Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games (DS) - 133,000

    Nothing in the way of surprises there, really, though it is interesting to note that both Assassin's Creed and Halo 3, big sellers in December didn't make the top ten.

    Total software sales for the month amounted to 610.6 million US dollars. NPD analyst Anita Frazier points out that "Pricing again plays into the great performance of software. The average retail price of games is up 19% from last January and much of that can be attributed to Rock Band and Guitar Hero. In fact, 360 Rock Band was the top-selling game in dollar terms, bringing in $30 million in sales for the month."

    Good news for COD4. Bad news for Halo 3.

    I think Halo 3 had enough sales from September through December for them not to worry too much. I'm glad to see people are seeing the light that is COD 4, and the WiiPlay numbers are impressive I might add. Also I was expecting it to be overall COD 4 sales, wasn't expecting it to be the 360 version alone.
