Resident Evil 4 Hacks its Way to the Top of Sales All Three Nintendo Systems Place Games in the Top 10
Capcom's pulse-pounding Resident Evil(R) 4, made exclusively for Nintendo GameCube(TM) beat all other video games in January sales. It's also one of the best-reviewed games in years. The sales boom no doubt has been driven by reviews that call the game "an absolute must-have," "an amazing achievement" and "early contender for game of the year." Resident Evil 4 boasts no fewer than 30 perfect ratings from magazine and online reviewers, and some 55 others that rate it at 90 percent or higher.
But if crazed townsfolk and monstrous creatures aren't your thing, Nintendo has plenty of other top-selling games to keep you occupied. According to the NPD Group's January sales tracking report, each Nintendo video game system had at least one game in January's top 10 sellers. In addition to Resident Evil 4 at No. 1, Nintendo continued its dominance of the hand-held market with The Legend of Zelda(R): The Minish Cap for Game Boy(R) Advance SP at No. 3 overall, Square Enix's KINGDOM HEARTS(R) CHAIN OF MEMORIES for GBA SP at No. 9 and Super Mario(R) 64 DS for Nintendo DS(TM) at No. 10.
