Xbox 360 Sells 297K At U.S. Retail In April, Kinect Portfolio To See Big 2011 Boost

May 12, 2011 | By Kris Graft




Just ahead of NPD's U.S. video game retail sales figures for the month of April, Microsoft said its Xbox 360 led home console competitors for another month with sales of 297,000 units, up 60 percent compared to the same month a year ago.

Xbox 360 has been the top-selling home console at U.S. retail for 10 out of the last 11 months, Microsoft said, making it the best-selling home console for the year. It also saw the most growth of any current-gen home console on the market during the month.

Microsoft also noted strong performance of Kinect games, with Kinect Sports selling over 3 million units worldwide to date, and Dance Central selling over 2.5 million.

The company added, "in anticipation of another record year in 2011, Microsoft announced the size of the Kinect games portfolio will triple by the end of the year."

Microsoft said total retail spend on Xbox 360 hardware, software and accessories during the month was $310 million, "still the highest among current generation consoles," the company said.

Top ten NPD games at U.S. retail for the month included Mortal Kombat, Portal 2, Crysis 2, Tiger Woods PGA Tour 12: The Masters and Michael Jackson: The Experience, all of which have versions on Xbox 360.
