No longer doing big analysis, but let's let the numbers speak for themselves!

And here we go, the final list for March 2013!




Interesting takeaways:

- Terraria shoots up the charts! One of the first to beat Minecraft's weekly sales in a long, long time. Added 127,944 players in its first week.- No idea on PSN sales for the game. If you purchased that version, let me know!

- Pretty much everything else we could follow this month failed - WRC Powerslide, Giana Sisters, and Dollar Dash. I'd wager Darkstalkers did pretty well, but we've no way to check.

- Couldn't follow Alien Spidy at all because the demo doesn't allow you to check. I'd wager it didn't sell very well.

- Got the Minecraft stat directly from Mojang themselves! Over 250,000 new players this month, pushing the game over 6,000,000 purchases! Madness!
