May NPD Numbers

pokeCan you guess what the top-selling game in the month of May was. Think about it for a sec, and we’ll wait for you. Waiting. Waiting. Waiting. OK, are you ready? Do you have your answer? If you believe Super Mario Galaxy 2 would be the winner, then slap yourself, because you were wrong. No, the top game in the month of May 2010, with just over a million and a half sold, is Red Dead Redemption. What a shocker. Also, as you might expect, the DS won the Hardware Wars with 384,000 sold. Hit the jump for a pair of lists.

Hey look! The 360 outsold the PS3! I guess the 360 continues to be the vastly superior console. PS3 sucks.
