The numbers are in for video game sales for the month of May and they are good. Year over year, hardware + software sales climbed 49%, as opposed to a more tepid 20% rise in April.

Here are the highlights:


  • Wii sold 338,000 units, the Xbox 360 sold 155,000 units and the PS3 sold 82,000 units.

  • The DS sold 422,000 units.

  • Nintendo had four of the top five software titles, led by Pokemon Diamond.

  • Microsoft got the number 6 software slot with Forza Motorsport.

  • Activision had two games on the top 10: Spider-Man 3 and Guitar Hero II.

  • The only other independent publisher registering a game on the top 10? EA with Command & Conquer 3.

  • Analysts suggest that the PS3 and Xbox 360 sales will pick up once there is a price drop. And, judging from sales, there needs to be a price drop to spur sales.
