Another slow month. Very slow in fact. This recession has taken its toll on hardware sales, but software sales were decent to say the least. UFC Undisputed tops the month and inFamous did quite well for five days worth of sales. It also did well considering the fact that it was a brand new IP.

The most surprising number for May was Punch Out!!’s – seems low for such a well known Nintendo first party franchise. I guess you could say Wii consoles selling under 300, 000 units to be a cause for concern as well, but compared to the competition? I don’t think so.
