      I’m not sure what Major meant with that last bullet, but here’s the top 10 selling games from last month, in order:

      Call of Duty: Black Ops II (360, PS3, PC, Wii U)**

      Halo 4 (360)**

      Assassin’s Creed III (360, PS3, Wii U, PC)**

      Just Dance 4 (Wii, 360, Wii U, PS3)

      Madden NFL 13 (360, PS3, Wii, PSV, Wii U)

      Skylander Giants (Wii, 360, PS3, 3DS, Wii U)**

      Need for Speed: Most Wanted 2012 (PS3, 360, PSV, PC)

      NBA 2K13 (360, PS3, Wii, PSP, Wii U, PC)**

      WWE 13 (360, PS3, Wii)

      FIFA Soccer 13 (360, PS3, Wii, PSV, 3DS, Wii U, PSP)

      There’s no way to know if Halo 4 outsold Black Ops 2 on the 360.

        It’s just sad that all of them are sequels, no new IPs – unfortunately they are less likely to sell as well.

        I miss when the NPDs broke it down by title and platform. Thanks, Sony! (< scarcasm for the sarcasm impaired.)

        I believe you are referring to the Christmas of 2007 when we had a rough month (late November to Late December.) That was as a result of back end issues. It had nothing to do with the service being hacked or any type of malicious activity.
        Also, LIVE was not down until February. That was a one time issue that we consider unfortunate.
        Let me recap: That was one major outage. As as result of internal issues.

        you are a complete idiot if you think the xbox network wasn’t hacked before, it was hacked like the year 360 released, the media just never made a big deal out of it.

        Interesting. Got a link for that?
        Was the hack as bad as the PS hack? did they get right down to the payment details?
        Also: PSN did have my creditcard details when they got hacked. Xbox hasn’t been hacked (afaik) since it’s had my details. That makes me a bit biased I’ll freely admit.

        The Xbox 360 was hacked just months before it was released so people could play pirated games on it.
