MS PR (47% share for 360). PS3 195k is at its best...

"Halfway through 2012, Xbox 360 maintained its lead in the U.S. console market, marking 18 months as the top-selling current-generation console in the U.S.

June highlights from The NPD Group include:

· Xbox 360 sold 257,000 units in June, holding 47 percent share of current-generation console sales in the U.S. This marks the 16th consecutive month that Xbox 360 has held more than a 40 percent share of current-generation console sales in the U.S.

· Total retail spend on the Xbox 360 platform in June (hardware, software and accessories) reached $272 million, the most for any console in the U.S. Consumers spent more on Xbox 360 products than they spent on the other two current-generation consoles combined.

· Xbox 360 held four of the top 10 U.S. console game titles, including the top three titles. Xbox 360 titles in the top 10 included: “Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Future Soldier,” “Lego Batman 2: DC Super Heroes,” “Max Payne 3” and “NBA 2K12.”

Xbox continues offering more ways to play with the launch of Kinect PlayFit, a new fitness dashboard that aggregates and tracks the calories you burn from playing Kinect games, including “Dance Central 2,” “Your Shape Fitness Evolved 2012” and “Kinect Star Wars.”

Xbox 360 will also be at Comic-Con International in San Diego this week with a series of exciting events including “Halo 4” and “Gears of War” panel presentations."

"Nintendo sold more than 400,000 total hardware units in June and saw double-digit growth across each of its product lines compared to May. This includes more than 155,000 Nintendo 3DS systems, more than 150,000 units of the Nintendo DS family of systems and nearly 95,000 Wii consoles."

Thanks. I don't think ms had given marketshare. Good to see.  Figures are quite a bit higher than many expected.

This is slightly surprising the DS almost outsold the 3DS in the usa?

An NPD thread that isn't 10 pages long yet? :O

Overall, I'd say good tracking by vgchartz :)

Same poster also came in later on and said the Vita was ~80k, so PSP is probably around 15k or so like VGC shows, or maybe a bit less.



iPhone = Great gaming device. Don't agree? Who cares, because you're wrong.

Currently playing:

Final Fantasy VI (iOS), Final Fantasy: Record Keeper (iOS) & Dragon Quest V (iOS)     

    

Got a retro room? Post it here!

Lollipop Chainsaw was hugely overtracked and I called it. VGC has it at 209,000 while NPD says 107,000.

I feel that Lollipop Chainsaw is severly overtracked. That game has zero hype and bad reviews. Lollipop screams cult hit at best, not a game that tops the charts at release.

I'm really upset with VGC going into maintenance during NPD time. That's what happens when the admins lose touch with with the community. Otherwise they would have known NPD day is the most exciting day of all month and they would have postponed the maintenance. I hope it was really necessary.
