Gamasutra has May U.S. physical game sales figures from industry analysts NPD Group. Following a surprisingly strong showing in April, word is total U.S. sales for May were down 14 percent to $743.1 million USD, which NPD calls the lowest recorded monthly retail performance in years. "Keeping in mind that these sales figures represent just the new physical portion of the market for video game hardware, software, and accessories and not the growing portion of the industry that is comprised of digital format content distribution, May 2011 was the lowest month of sales for the industry since October 2006," explains NPD analyst Anita Frazier. "A light slate of new releases is at the heart of this month's performance."
