Microsoft has sold 194,600 Xbox 360 on Sony only managed to sell 154,500 PS3 consoles in May.

Four of the top 10 best-selling games of May play on Nintendo systems. These include Super Mario Galaxy 2 at No. 3 with more than 563,000 sold, New Super Mario Bros. Wii at No. 6 with more than 183,000 sold, Wii Fit Plus with the Wii Balance Board at No. 7 with more than 161,000 sold and Pokémon SoulSilver Version at No. 8 with more than 141,000 sold.
