In a month where so many new releases hit the shelves, it's utterly surprising that Mass Effect 3 came out on top as the number one selling game in March. Nevertheless, a congratulations is in order to EA and the BioWare team on putting out a title that fans are still talking about every single day and playing with a feverish passion.
“Mass Effect 3 sold more than twice as much as did Mass Effect 2 during its introductory month in January 2010,” said Anita Frazer, a NPD Group Analyst.
Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City, MLB 12: The Show, NBA 2K12, and SSX rounded out the top five games sold in March according to the NPD Group. Gamers spent a total of $553.1MM on game software throughout March, which added up to 25 percent less than they spent on games last March.
