February wasn’t a particularly shocking month for the games industry. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 is still the best-selling game; Xbox 360 is still the best-selling console (for the twelfth month in a row); and the top 10 is comprised of known franchises.

There are a few surprises, though. Kingdoms of Amalur makes a lone appearance as the only original IP in the top 10. Skylanders accessories generated more than $17 million in sales and “if added to the sales generated by the software, Skylanders easily claims the top spot for content-related sales,” according to NPD’s Anita Frazier.

PS Vita had four days at retail for NPD’s February reporting time (1/29 through 2/25), but it already generated $10 million in accessory sales. Unsurprisingly, the top retail Vita game was Uncharted: Golden Abyss–showing that the $50 price tag didn’t really scare people off. Unfortunately, it only made it into the top 20, not top 10.

Here is the full list:
