The new video game sales numbers from NPD Group for March 2010 are here and Nintendo rules as most months in the recent history.
The Nintendo DS family of hand-held systems – including the new Nintendo DSi XL – set an all-time record for portable system sales in the month of March, selling more than 700,000 units nationwide.

The Wii leads the home console sales charts with 557,500 units followed by the Xbox 360 with 338,400 and the PS3 with 313,900.

Four of the top 10 best-selling games in March play only on Nintendo systems. These include Pokémon SoulSilver Version at No. 1 with more than 1.01 million units sold, Pokémon HeartGold Version at No. 5 with more than 761,000 units sold, New Super Mario Bros. Wii at No. 7 with more than 457,000 units sold, and Wii Fit Plus with Wii Balance Board accessory at No. 10 with more than 339,000 units sold.

How big the impact of the new DSi XL was on the March sales is not clear. Nintendo started to ship the DSi XL only late in March.
