Some impressive figures there -- particularly RDR; I would be interested to see its actual sales figures as I think it was about 8 million sales a handful of months back. Interesting that Midnight Club has shipped 18.5 million unit across its four main instalments, as I thought the series was effectively hung out to dry after MC:LA.

Also, looking forward to BioShock Infinite next March, and I think that will shift some impressive numbers. I've watched a few gameplay videos recently, and it's looking amazing.

I would really like to see what that compares to any of the Mario or Sonic franchises. Yes they may have been around a bit longer but in comparison it would be interesting.
