NPD Sales Numbers For June 2010

Posted July 15, 2010 by Megaton News in DS

NPD for June changes things up a little bit with the Xbox 360 just barely taking the number 2 spot thanks to stock clearing sales on the old model 360’s and the release of the 360 short. Red Dead and Galaxy 2 continue to hold the first 3 software slots, while Toy Story 3 for DS and Lego Harry Potter Wii make a strong showing for licensed titles. Being beaten in the portable space by Toy Story 3 must be painful for Hideo Kojima whose Metal Gear Solid Peace Walker failed to chart on that unlovable loser the PSP. Alpha Protocol, Singularity, and Transformers should also commit seppuku for their horrible sales this month.

Nintendo DS 510,700
Xbox 360 451,700
Wii 422,500
PlayStation 3 304,800
PSP 121,000

16. FIFA World Cup PS3
17. Mario Kart Wii
18. Pokemon HeartGold DS
19. Toy Story 3 Wii
20. Wii Sports Resort

Also some numbers for specific games were released.
Transformers 360 did 132,000, and Wii Sports Resort in the 20 position sold less than 100,000 which should give you an idea of how bad some of this month’s other releases did. Metal Gear Solid Peace Walker failed to even crack the top 20 selling only 52,000 copies. Even worse numbers for Green Day Rock Band which sold only 83,000 copies between ALL 3 of the console releases. Skate 3 only sold 253,000 copies in it’s first 2 months down forty percent from Skate 2, and Tiger Woods 11 dropped 68 percent from last year’s release, due entirely to Tiger’s unquenchable love of white meat being made public this year.

According to the twitter account of an IGN employee some bombs of the month are in this order:
Naughty Bear > Singularity > Sin and Punishment
Perhaps if Singularity, or Sin and Punishment had had any promotion whatsoever they might have had at least a remote chance of beating out Naughty Bear!
