March NPD Numbers and some surprises

Posted by: John at 4/16/2009 9:24 PM
Here's the March NPD numbers for consoles. nothing surprising here again as the PS3 sits at a pretty low number of sales while the Wii continues to flourish. As far as games go, Resident Evil 5 did some heavy damage at being #1 last month with almost a million sales while Halo Wars breaks out at 693K units sold. MLB 09 The Show also did well as it out sold 2K Games MLB2K9. Finally, Killzone 2 had a disappointing month coming in sixth with 296K sold. Yeah, that's not how a top tier title for a system should sell.
