June 2010 NPDs -- Red Dead Redemption still riding high

Red Dead Redemption tops video game sales for second month in row

The NPD Group has their monthly video game sales report for the month of June 2010 up and it's about what you'd expect -- Red Dead Redemption holds the top spot with a slew of Nintendo titles not far behind. Turned out to be a tough month for hardware sales, but what do you expect with Move and Kinect on the horizon and not much hardware coming out in the meantime?

Here's the top 10:

Red Dead Redemption (Xbox 360)

Super Mario Galaxy 2

Red Dead Redemption (PS3)

New Super Mario Bros. Wii

Just Dance

Wii Fit Plus (with Balance Board)

Toy Story 3 (Nintendo DS)

UFC 2010: Undisputed (Xbox 360)

LEGO Harry Potter: Years 1-4 (Wii)

UFC 2010: Undisputed (PS3)

Note that Super Mario Galaxy jumped from third place to second despite selling less than it did in May (down to 548,900 from 563,000).

Here's what happened hardware-wise:

Nintendo DS -- 510.7K

Xbox 360 -- 451.7K

Wii -- 422.5K

PlayStation 3 -- 304.8K

PSP -- 121K

Microsoft's Aaron Greenberg hopped on Twitter earlier about the 360's success:

Look out hare, here comes the tortoise...post E3 bump & new console drives Xbox 360 sales up 88% as top selling console in June

And that's all the NPD for this month. See you again in August for July's numbers.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

If you’re looking to invest in your next work horse laptop for work or home use, you can’t go wrong with the MSI GE63.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
