This information comes from Yoshinori Ono, producer of Super Street Fighter 4 3D…

“I’ve heard some pessimistic comments on 3DS capabilities before the launch from some game creators but they obviously have not seen Super Street Fighter IV 3D or Resident Evil games on the 3DS. When I first had the chance to see 3DS I went over the moon three times because of the 3D vision, hardware spec and the extensive network functions. With Super Street Fighter IV 3D you will see the best yet graphics on a handheld with specially tuned shaders and effects. I also think those game creators should stop slacking and just start making good games rather than whine about the tools given!”

Ono wouldn’t say who has been critizing the 3DS… you have to wonder who those developers are!


Xbox 360 – 381,000 (15% y-o-y)
Wii – 319,000 (-31% y-o-y)
PS3 – 267,000 (-3% y-o-y)

The information below comes straight from Wedbush Morgan…

Current generation (PS3, Wii, 360, PSP, DS) software sales were $572 million, $52 million above our estimate, while legacy software sales were $4 million, $6 million below our estimate. Wii software sales were $179 million (down 20% y-o-y), Xbox 360 sales were $170 million (up 8%), and PS3 sales were $141 million (up 24%). DS software sales were $72 million (down 13%), while PSP software sales Entertainment: Software| 3 were $10 million (down 37%).

The increases in sales for the PS3 and Xbox 360 platforms have become the norm, and declines for the other consoles have also become the norm. Over the next year, we expect Wii and DS software sales to continue the negative trend, but anticipate strong sales for Nintendo’s 3DS that should spur overall handheld software sales back into positive territory. We expect PS3 software sales to spike when several high profile releases launch in the coming months, and believe that overall PS3 software sales would benefit immensely from a hardware price cut, expected in June.

Under one-fifth of PS3 sales included bundles with Sony’s Move controller, suggesting another modest month (we have chosen not to subscribe to peripheral data). Just under three-fifths of Xbox 360 sales included bundles with Microsoft’s Kinect peripheral, as Xbox 360 Kinect console bundles again outsold PS3 Move console bundles by almost 5:1. We note that the top selling Kinect software titles easily outsold their Move counterparts

Sales are not yet available for handhelds, but we’ll update this post if any other data comes in. Also, in case you missed it last night, you can find the top 10 software sales for the month right here.
