We expect May sales to be led by new releases, Bethesda Softworks’  Brink (360, PS3, PC) and Take-Two’s (NASDAQ:TTWO) L.A. Noire (360, PS3), with continued strong sales of April releases Electronic Arts’ (NASDAQ:ERTS) Portal 2 and Warner Bros’ (NYSE:TWX) Mortal Kombat, and Nintendo’s Pokémon Black and White and Ubisoft’s Just Dance 2.

We expect hardware sales of 225,000 Wii units (down 33% year-over-year), 300,000 Xbox (NASDAQ:MSFT) 360 units (up 54% y-o-y), 175,000 PS3 (NYSE:SNE) units (up 13% y-o-y), 220,000 DS units  (down 43% y-o-y), and 180,000 3DS units in its third month (down 7% from its second month). Overall, we expect hardware unit sales to be up 3.5%, with console hardware unit sales flat and handheld hardware unit sales up 8%. Wii hardware sales likely received a modest lift due to May’s price cut, while PSP sales are expected to see a sequential decline due to the introduction of the NGP (likely to be named the “PS Vita” at E3) expected later this year or early next year.
