Yesterday, the NPD group released their monthly sales numbers and while Modern Warfare 2 didn’t crack the top ten in March, it’s still selling. It’s selling so well in fact that, according to the NPD data, it’s now the second highest-selling videogame in US history.
No exact numbers were given, but VGChartz has the global lifetime sales for the console versions pegged around 18,000,000 units (10.41 on 360 and 7.63 on PS3), so that claim doesn’t seem out of the realm of possibility.
So what’s #1?
Remember when you bought a spare Wiimote and for $10 extra they threw in a minigame collection? Yeah, that one. Good luck catching up to Wii Play’s astonishing 27.16 million units.
