First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.
June 2010 NPDs -- Red Dead Redemption still riding high
- — 16 July, 2010 09:01
The NPD Group has their monthly video game sales report for the month of June 2010 up and it's about what you'd expect -- Red Dead Redemption holds the top spot with a slew of Nintendo titles not far behind. Turned out to be a tough month for hardware sales, but what do you expect with Move and Kinect on the horizon and not much hardware coming out in the meantime?
Here's the top 10:
Red Dead Redemption (Xbox 360)
Super Mario Galaxy 2
Red Dead Redemption (PS3)
New Super Mario Bros. Wii
Wii Fit Plus (with Balance Board)
Toy Story 3 (Nintendo DS)
UFC 2010: Undisputed (Xbox 360)
LEGO Harry Potter: Years 1-4 (Wii)
UFC 2010: Undisputed (PS3)
Note that Super Mario Galaxy jumped from third place to second despite selling less than it did in May (down to 548,900 from 563,000).
Here's what happened hardware-wise:
Nintendo DS -- 510.7K
Xbox 360 -- 451.7K
Wii -- 422.5K
PlayStation 3 -- 304.8K
PSP -- 121K
Microsoft's Aaron Greenberg hopped on Twitter earlier about the 360's success:
Look out hare, here comes the tortoise...post E3 bump & new console drives Xbox 360 sales up 88% as top selling console in June
And that's all the NPD for this month. See you again in August for July's numbers.
