Here is my article on June NPD data and hardware.  http://www.vgchartz.com/news/news.php?id=421

I have included a bevy of other information in this post however, so if you want more data, keep reading.

My expectations for USA NPD June (a 5 week month vs. 4 week May)

DS - 520k

Wii - 425k

PSP - 240k

PS2 - 225k

X360 - 185k

PS3 - 95k

GBA - 90k

GC - 10k

Below is historical and current data...

We begin with a look back at May sales:

 May US NPDMay Can NPDMay total NPDcan/total sales

PS381,0006,50087,5007.40%

Compare changes in Canadian data (note May was 4 weeks, June is 5 for both USA & Canadian data):

 May Can NPDJune Canada NPD

Xbox 36012,30013,500
PS218,20021,000
PSP15,00018,500
PS36,5006,500

Using the percentages Canadian May NPD accounted for out of Canadian May NPD + American May NPD, and the rate of increase/decrease in sales for each piece of hardware in Canada from May to June on a weekly basis, I expect totals to look like this for NPD June (USA + Canada)

In the United States, Pachter & The Sim Exchange expect the following ( http://www.gamasutra.com/php-bin/news_index.php?story=14709 ):
