Mass Effect 3 tops March sales



/ 6 years ago

Research firm NPD revealed March video game sales results for the U.S. Total video game sales declined 25 percent year-over-year from $1.47 billion to $1.1 billion.

“The Xbox 360 is the best-selling console system for the last 15, and the best-selling hardware platform overall for the past 8 months,” said NPD analyst Anita Frazier.
On the software side, Electronic Arts’ Mass Effect 3 unsurprisingly took the top spot with Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City coming in second with 582,000 units sold.
“Mass Effect 3 sold more than twice as much as did Mass Effect 2 during its introductory month in January 2010,” Frazier added. “In a list of the top 10 SKU’s for the month (as opposed to top titles as listed here), 3DS Kids Icarus: Uprising would have been among the top selling individual SKU’s for the
month of March.”
Below are the top 10 games by units sold for the month of March:
  1. Mass Effect 3 (360, PS3, PC)
  2. Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City (360, PS3)
  3. MLB 12: The Show (PS3, PSV) 3 Sony (Corp)
  4. NBA 2K12 (360, PS3, Wii, PSP, PC, PS2)
  5. SSX 2012 (360, PS3)
  6. Street Fighter X Tekken (PS3, 360)
  7. Mario Party 9 (Wii)
  8. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 (360, PS3, Wii, PC)
  9. Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja (360, PS3)
  10. Major League Baseball 2K12 (360, PS3, Wii, NDS, PSP, PC, PS2)
