Sparse release lineup, lagging hardware still taking their toll on retail game sales

If you've been following U.S. retail game sales for the last several months, you've probably noticed a pattern. Sales have been down for months on end, and perhaps as expected, that trend continued in June.

According to data from the NPD Group, the retail game sales for the month saw a 29 percent decline to $699.8 million, down from $989.5 million in June 2011. Sales fared a bit better than they did the month prior, though that was partially because the NPD Group's data for June also covered the end of May.
