Horrible, Horrible from all 3 consoles in 2012. Good to see the ps3 is at least above the 2009 numbers. 360 is not bad but not very good either, and Wii is just horrendous.

About time this generation ended. Getting tired of all the sequels. Of the games which sold above 3 million this generation, how many don't have direct sequels? Red Dead Redemption, MGS4, and a handful of old Nintendo IP's are the only one that comes to mind, but they are sequels from past gens.
