Super Mario Galaxy 2 Preview

If you're feeling a bit of deja vu, that's because the NPD Group has just released sales figures for June and both Red Dead Redemption and Super Mario Galaxy 2 have topped the sales charts once again. And for once, Nintendo isn't leading the console sales with Wii -- in June, it's Xbox 360.

Video Game Hardware Sales, June 2010

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

Hold your applause, however. Red Dead Redemption and Super Mario Galaxy 2 continue to sell well, but NPD Group analyst Anita Frazier warns the industry continues to experience slow sales.

"Unfortunately, the industry realized a decline versus the same time period last year," said Frazier in prepared remarks released with the numbers, "driven by decreases in sales of portable hardware and console and portable software. A bright spot was sales of console hardware, which increased 35% in unit sales over last June, driven by significant increases in Xbox 360 and PS3 sales."

The bright spots were in hardware sales, with Microsoft experiencing its second best non-holiday month of hardware sales, bolstered by the release of the re-designed Xbox 360. June also marks the 11th month in-a-row were Sony has seen year-over-year sales increases for PlayStation 3.
