The NPD Group has released the sales data for May and while it was a weak month in both hardware and software, someone's gotta win the gold medal. UFC 2009 Undisputed and the Nintendo DS are kings of very small hills.

Software
  • UFC 2009 Undisputed (THQ, Xbox 360, 679.6K)
  • Wii Fit (Nintendo, Wii, 352.8K)
  • EA Sports Active (EA, Wii, 345.8K)
  • UFC 2009 Undisputed (THQ, PS3, 334.4K)
  • inFamous (Sony, PS3, 175.9K)
  • Pokemon Platinum (Nintendo, DS, 168.9K)
  • Mario Kart Wii (Nintendo, Wii, 158.3K)
  • Punch Out!! (Nintendo, Wii, 156.9K)
  • X-Men Origins Wolverine Uncaged Edition (Acti Blizz, Xbox 360, 120.7K)
  • Wii Play (Nintendo, Wii, 109.8K)
Hardware
  • Nintendo DS - 633.5K

  • Xbox 360 - 175K

Software revenue was down 17% and hardware was down 30%. This is the first time that monthly sales for the gaming industry have fell below $1 billion since August 2007, according to the NPD. Still, THQ's no doubt very pleased with how UFC 2009 performed, racking up over a million in sales in half a month. No wonder EA's preparing their own mixed martial arts game.
