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.

HP OfficeJet Pro 8730

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

As a freelance writer who is always on the go, I like my technology to be both efficient and effective so I can do my job well. The HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 Inkjet Printer ticks all the boxes in terms of form factor, performance and user interface.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Windows 10 / HP Spectre x360

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Mark Escubio

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga 910

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
