June 2010 NPDs -- Red Dead Redemption still riding high

Red Dead Redemption tops video game sales for second month in row

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

Just Dance

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.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
