Xbox 360 maintained its position as the top console in the U.S. last month, according to new data from The NPD Group. Xbox sold 130,000 units in April marking it as the 28th consecutive month that the Xbox 360 was the best-selling console in the U.S.
Highlights from NPD include:
· Holding 42 percent share of current-generation console sales, Xbox 360 sold 130,000 units in April, maintaining the number-one console spot in the U.S.
· Total retail spend on the Xbox 360 platform in April (hardware, software and accessories) reached $208 million, the most for any console in the U.S.
· During the month of April, Xbox 360 held six of the top 10 console game titles including: “NBA 2K13,” “Dead Island: Riptide,” “BioShock Infinite,” Defiance,” Injustice: Gods Among Us” and “Call of Duty: Black Ops 2.”
FYI, Microsoft is set to unveil Xbox vNext on May 21 which is the reason why the current generation console sales are declining.
