Sales numbers for 2012

The folks at NPD have released the sales estimates in the United States for the month of December, as well as for the entire year of 2012. There are some true surprises on this list for me, particularly the success that NBA 2K13 and Fifa 13 had throughout the year, as well as the numbers that Lego Batman brought in. Then the one that disappoints me the most is of course Just Dance 4, being #2 in December and coming in at #5 overall! Bah! I believe these numbers are strictly retail copies from outlets, and do not include any digital downloads such as through the extremely popular Steam service or Xbox Live and PSN.
