April NPD Numbers Are In…Sort Of…

Ok so we don’t have the actual numbers, but I can tell you the following…

Top 10 best-selling games (US) for April 2011:

  • Mortal Kombat — PS3, 360 — 1 — Warner Bros.
  • Portal 2 — 360, PS3, PC — 2 — Electronic Arts (Valve)
  • Lego Star Wars III: The Clone Wars — WII, 360, NDS, PS3, 3DS, PSP, PC — 3 — LucasArts
  • Call of Duty: Black Ops — 360, PS3, NDS, Wii, PC — 4 — Activision
  • Tiger Woods PGA Tour 12: The Masters — 360, PS3, Wii — 5 — Electronic Arts
  • Crysis 2 — 360, PS3, PC — 6 — Electronic Arts
  • Just Dance 2 — Wii — 7 — Ubisoft
  • Michael Jackson The Experience — 360, Wii, PS3, NDS, PSP — 8 — Ubisoft
  • Pokemon White Version — NDS — 9 — Nintendo
  • NBA 2K11 — 360, PS3, PS2, Wii, PSP, PC — 10 — Take 2 Interactive

No surprise that MK and Portal 2 are top dogs.  Also no surprise that the Xbox 360 was the number one selling console for the month, moving 297,000 units.  Next month will be extremely revealing in so much as it will likely show how much, if any, the PlayStation Network outage affected sales of the PS3.  I sure miss the old days where we could easily compare how consoles were fairing against each other, and which platform games sold better on.  For now, we sit back and guess.  Isn’t that just wonderful (sarcasm included).
