    Analysis of the game and hardware sales numbers:

    Although NPD doesn’t by far track all digital sales, retail still gives a good impression of last month’s best selling video games.

    To quote NPD industry analyst Liam Callahan…

    About video games he said:

    “Collectively, May 2014 launches sold 800 percent more in dollar sales than May 2013 launches did their respective launch months. New launches represented 50 percent of dollar sales this month, which compared to only 9 percent for new launches in May 2013.”

    About hardware he said:

    “Much of May 2014’s hardware growth was due to Xbox One and PS4, there was also year-over-year growth for the Wii U, and PS Vita thanks to successful bundles for Mario Kart 8 on Wii U and Borderlands 2 for the PS Vita.”
