US game/console sales for May

http://www.gamesindustry.biz/content...=ret&aid=3662#




1. Red Dead Revolver (PS2) Take 2 Interactive
2. Fight Night 2004 (PS2) Electronic Arts
3. NBA Ballers (PS2) Midway
4. Shrek 2 (PS2) Activision
5. MVP Baseball 2004 (PS2) Electronic Arts
6. Transformers (PS2) Atari
7. Red Dead Revolver (Xbox) Take 2 Interactive
8. Syphon Filter: The Omega Strain (PS2) Sony
9. Onimusha 3: Demon Siege (PS2) Capcom USA
10. Samurai Warriors (PS2) Koei
11. Hitman: Contracts (PS2) Eidos Interactive
12. Pokemon Colosseum (GameCube) Nintendo
13. Shrek 2 (GameCube) Activision
14. Van Helsing (PS2) Vivendi Universal
15. Fight Night 2004 (Xbox) Electronic Arts
16. Splinter Cell Pandora Tomorrow (Xbox) Ubisoft
17. Custom Robo (GameCube) Nintendo
18. Halo (Xbox) Microsoft

Red Dead Revolver being #1 surprised me, and I expected Samurai Warriors to do better. Tranformers being as high as it is is also a bit surprising.

I'd like to see a Top 20 or something for the PS2. Would like to see how La Pucelle did (not terribly surprised it didn't make the top 10, given that it would have had to sell more than 60k copies).

A LOT of games didn't do very well. Standouts are Onimusha 3 and Rallisport Challenge 2. Those numbers are just sad.

Is anyone else really surprised that Shrek 2 made all four lists?

But it's because people don't bother to look at numbers. The game actually sold the most on PS2 and Gameboy. It was on the Gamecube top part of the list since it's a fairly new release to go along with a very popular movie. Expect something similar with Spiderman 2.

Disgaea broke the top ten, so I expected La Pucelle to at least have a decent showing that's apparently not happening.

Ah, but look at this:

GCN POKEMON COLOSSEUM $2,699,522 56,692
GCN SHREK 2 $2,691,449 54,099
GCN CUSTOM ROBO $1,889,476 47,598
GCN MARIO KART: DOUBLE $1,315,605 26,582
GCN HARVEST MOON:WONDRFUL $1,107,039 27,812
GCN SONIC HEROES $895,927 17,968
GCN SUPER SMASH BRO MELEE $837,854 28,192
GCN SONIC MEGA COLLECTION $807,821 41,144
GCN MVP BASEBALL 2004 $797,860 16,465
GCN MARIO PARTY 5 $710,399 14,326

The only game on that list that does not feature a cartoon/anime look to it, is MVP Baseball. That's why the GC has the kid friendly image (and that's not a bad thing), because that is what the people are actually buying.
