US May Non-PC Game Sales $815 Million

Non-PC game and hardware sales tells quite clear language: Nintendo is doing great. Just look at the hardware sales: Nintendo Wii 338,000, PlayStation 3: 82,000. While Sony’s market revenue change is positive (look at the third chart), Microsoft has a bigger market share and more growth – and Nintendo leads. Retails software sales also tell tough message for Sony. While PS2 is doing well on the charts, there’s not a single PlayStation 3 games in the top selling list. On the other hand, there’s several products by Nintendo and Microsoft (and Activision as well).
