Following the release of the NPD data for the month of May, Microsoft's Aaron Greenberg tweeted that Xbox 360 took 45 percent of the console share for the month, which is the 15th consecutive month that the platform has had 40 percent share or greater in the US.
All told, the console sold 160,000 units in May. Microsoft confirmed in a separate email statement that this does indeed make the console the top selling console once again in the US. Xbox 360 has been "maintaining its position as the best-selling console in the US for the past 17 months," the company boasted.
The Xbox 360 saw total retail spend (hardware, software and accessories) reaching $209 million, "the most for any console in the US and more than the spend on the other two current-generation consoles combined." Six of the top 10 selling games according to NPD were on the Xbox 360 platform.
