    Sports games on last week’s Top 100 sales list, from vgchartz:

    MLB The Show (PS3) — 6th place, but only Diablo III, Max Payne 3, and Game of Thrones sold more for the week.  Great to see such a high quality continuing to pay off for the SCEA team.

    NBA 2k12 (360) — 11th place

    NBA 2k12 (PS3) — 28th place

    MLB 2k12 (360) — 29th place

    Fifa 12 (360) — 50th place

    Fifa 12 (PS3) — 67th place

    NBA 2k12 (Wii) — 97th place

    Nowhere to be found in the Top 100:  Tiger Woods 13 (for any system — ouch!), SSX, FIFA Street, Grand Slam 2
