January’s NPD software results are in, and they’re as unpredictable as ever. While LittleBigPlanet 2 scored over 350,000 sales in its first couple of weeks, Call of Duty: Black Ops is still on top despite coming out back in November. Dead Space 2 has managed to secure the #3 spot while only being on the market for a few days before the tally was calculated. Although some big games are already doing well this year, statistics reveal that sales were down roughly 5% from January of last year.
