So the official sales stats are out for May in the USA and the release of GTA IV didn’t do much to help either console which was quite strange…

At the bottom of the pile is the PSP with the 360 just scraping past it, then comes the PS3, DS and the Wii is still way out in front.

Hardware
Wii 675.1K
Nintendo DS 452.6K
PlayStation 3 208.7K
Xbox 360 186.6K
PlayStation Portable 182.3K

This will come as a big disappointment to Microsoft who would have hoped the GTA hype could have lifted it above the PS3, The Wii however once again recorded the most amazing sales figures… I honestly don’t think it can be stopped now.

Microsoft has something to smile about in the software department though, with the number 1 selling unbundled game around, GTA IV… which sold around twice the amount of copies on the 360 compared to the PS3… Mario Kart and Wii Fit kept the flag flying high for Nintendo.

GTA IV has now sold a combined 4.2 million units making it the single best seller this year already… No suprises there though.
