Wow Resident Evil sold really well. Surprised it sold that much on 360 alone. Halo Wars sold very well for a RTS. Shocker for me is that The Show outsold Killzone 2.

Wii Play is 8 down on the list.

 

I'm keeping an eye out for Mad World and GTA:Chinatown numbers as some industry folks throw them out on twitter

 

In NA Halo Wars has sold more then KZ2 639k to 621K

 

Glad to see MLB The Show outsell 2k. 2k Series is a serious joke

Is that a million sales or a million shipped? Mortal Kombat vs DC did a sneaky thing like that saying they sold a million copies (to stores...which basically means shipped)

 

I know companies like to say shipped instead of sold-thru, I've pointed out the difference here many times :) NPD tracks Killzone 2 as selling ~600k in North America so it's fair to extrapolate it may very well have sold through 1 million worldwide.

 

Here's the announcement on Joystiq.

I read on Kotaku this morning that Sega is extremely happy with the 66,000 units of Mad World sold. I guess if the development costs were low enough, that's a couple million dollars in half a month plus whatever they sold in Japan.

 

Sega America will just have to book translation, marketing & publishing costs for the Western release remember, so what makes them happy may not make Sega as a whole happy :)

I am surprised to see Halo 3 in the top 10 list for Xbox 360 games. Does this game always sell this well, or is it just because the Mythic Map pack was just released? I also noticed 5 of the 10 Wii titles are not published/developed by Nintendo. So much for third party titles not selling on the Wii.

Halo 3 had a price drop to $30.

 

As for the Wii 3rd party sales. Guitar Hero games have been the 3rd party franchise that has sold well on the Wii. Also the mini game stuff like Carnival games has done well. Expect the EA workout thing to do well also. Everything else I wouldn't hold my breath on. Madworld in its debut month was less then 70000 which is not good at all, and Sonic and the Black Knight even less then that. The new house of the dead was even less then that around 45,000 in its debut

Nintendo may have won again but the 360 was the only console to show growth.

 

Comparison: March 2008/2009 NPD

 

Wii: 721K/601K

NDS: 698K/563K

360: 262K/330K

PS3: 257K/218K

PSP: 297K/168K

PS2: 216K/112K

 

How much longer will Sony hold out on a price drop?
