AvP devours February charts

The big games of February may have belonged to Sega, Ubisoft and Take-Two, but it was EA that emerged as the biggest publisher last month.

The publisher’s vast back catalogue drove sales, with FIFA 10, Mass Effect 2 and Dante’s Inferno the key products.

Sega was the highest riser in the publisher rankings, courtesy of February’s biggest seller: Aliens vs Predator.

Continued sales of Vancouver 2010, Bayonetta and Mario & Sonic were also a boost for the Japanese publisher last month. Meanwhile, Just Dance, BioShock 2 and Heavy Rain helped Ubisoft, Take-Two and Sony increase their market share.

However, there were small falls for Nintendo, Codemasters, Activision and THQ, with no new titles from the three publishers breaking into the Top 50.

In terms of units of games sold last month, Wii was the most popular platform. However, with many Wii games on sale at budget prices (including Just Dance and Wii Fit Plus), Xbox 360 was the most successful platform in terms of the value of games sold last month.
