Prototype 2

Prototype 2 was the top-selling game in April. The supernaturally tinged dystopian action game beat out Kinect Star Wars and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, numbers two and three on the charts, respectively. This is great news if you're a fan of publisher Activision or developer Radical, but April was not a good month for gaming software as a whole. According to the figures released by industry analysts at the NPD Group, sales were down 32 percent versus last year.

“I think what the new physical retail content sales reflect a very light release schedule in terms of the amount of compelling new games," said the NPD's Anita Frazier in a statement. "Last April, the top seven titles outsold the top-selling title this year, and, simply stated, there were notably fewer new market introductions. I think it’s a simple as that because when we see compelling content come into the market, the games are still selling as well as ever – we just saw a lot less this April as compared to last.”
