Great numbers posted by all.

The May NPD results came out yesterday, and on the whole, it appears everyone seems to have won.

Watch Dogs topped the sales charts, predictably enough, scoring a comfortable first place in the All Formats Charts. It sold over 1.25 million copies in the US last month, with 46% of those sales coming for the PS4 SKU, 29% for the Xbox One version, and 14% and 11% for the Xbox 360 and PS3 respectively.

Mario Kart 8 also scored a major victory, coming in #2 overall- this is notable for three reasons. 1) Mario Kart 8 was released on May 29, so only two days worth of sales are counted. 2) Mario Kart 8’s audience is limited by the tiny Wii U install base, and 3) it topped other major multiplat releases of the month, such as Wolfenstein and MLB The Show.

PlayStation 4 was a comfortable first place in the hardware charts, with 3DS ending in second place, selling more than the Xbox One, that nonetheless managed to sell more than a newly resurgent Wii  U. PS3 sales suffered, selling less than 50,000 units, and being outsold not just by the Xbox 360, but also the PlayStation Vita, which, in a stunning reversal of fortunes, sold 56,000 units last month.

The breakdown of hardware charts is:

  1. PlayStation 4
  2. Nintendo 3DS
  3. Xbox One
  4. Wii U
  5. Xbox 360
  6. PlayStation Vita
  7. PlayStation 3
  8. Wii
