Nintendo 3DS denies Xbox 360 victory to top US hardware chart


The Nintendo 3DS has ended Microsoft’s 28 consecutive month grasp on leading the monthly hardware chart for North America with their Xbox 360.

Whilst the NPD have described May as being “a slow month overall, Nintendo saw similar success with Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D and Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon place third and fifth within the software chart respectively.
