    After an abysmal 2012 for video games retail, US game sales in January were perhaps slightly more encouraging (depending on your viewpoint), as total industry sales climbed nine percent to $834.7 million.
    Hardware sales increased four percent to $205 million while software (including PC games) was flat at almost $393 million. Accessories, however, jumped 30 percent to $256.6 million, thanks to Skylanders
    and point or subscription cards.

    The news is tempered somewhat by the fact that January was a five-week reporting period for The NPD Group. NPD explained that a 'Leap Week' is needed every five to six years "in order to preserve
    the seasonal integrity of the months." The last adjustment was made in January 2007, and NPD said this is "consistent with the US-based National Retail Federation's (NRF) published Retailer Calendar,
    which most retailers and NPD follow."

    So in truth, software sales for the month, when normalized for a normal reporting period, were actually down 19 percent, NPD explained.

    With the exception of Capcom's new Devil May Cry, January saw no major releases to speak of on the top ten, so 2012's year-end hot sellers like Call of Duty and Far Cry 3 continued to top the charts.
    That said, new releases did fare a bit better than in past January periods. "While the number of new SKUs was relatively consistent for January 2013 compared to January 2012, performance of new SKUs
    this year versus last was six times as high,
    lifted by the success of titles like DMC: Devil May Cry and Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch," observed NPD industry analyst Liam Callahan.

    Wii U 55, 000 at January, and its only been out a few months is a disaster. They need to do something quick. TIP- PRICE CUT
    Vita isnt doing great either. Xbox 360 still selling well.

    Wii U could probably use some games more than anything else. Terrible figures for a brand new console.

    See also: Vita.

    Forgot to mention its a five week period for this months data. So the Wii U is averaging at around 11k a week and Vita under 8K. LOL

    I think its much more need of a price cut. Nintendo have already released a Mario game and a lot of casual titles and it hasn't helped. Games like Zelda, Pikmin and Rayman wont have much affect on the sales IMO. It never does In the US

    Some marketing probably wouldn't go amiss either.

    No, I stopped doing them because we stopped getting most of the numbers.

    They really are poor. Are these figures only for America? Is the vita and WiiU doing any better in Japan?

    Better than they are elsewhere, relatively speaking, but the 3DS has the Japanese market locked down. It sells more than twice what all the others put together do week after week.

    Definitely not much better in Japan. Vita is sub 10k a week there and Wii U is about 12k a week.

    Where's PS3? Just interested.

    It's terrifying to see the 360 sell so much more than those 2. Look, I love my 360 and all, but if I had the cash right now I'd have a Vita and PS+.

    All we know for the PS3 is that it, plus the Wii = 357k. If I was to hazard a guess I'd say the PS3 is about 215k.

    Ouch. Still, to be expected with rampant rumours of new machines in papers and a third hardware model in 6/7 years...
