NPD will report USA video game sales results for the five weeks ending July 4, 2009 at 6:30 PM EST. Vgchartz for the Americas region over the entire period is already available. Over the last several months, video game hardware and software sales have declined from the level achieved in 2008 during the same month.
This trend has continued into June 2009 even though software sales look stronger than May 2009, due to an extra week of data in the tracking period. Besides the increase in time though, there are simply a lot more titles which sold over 100,000 units in June 2009 than in May 2009. Hardware sales continue to decline though.
