The March NPD numbers are in and God of War protagonist (if you can call him that) Kratos took home the top spot.


Sony’s “God Of War III” outsold the lot and in March and sold a whopping 1.1 million followed closely by “Pokemon SoulSilver” for DS at 1.02 million.

It’s important to remember “Final Fantasy”, “Pokemon” and “Battlefield: Bad Company 2” are multiplatform titles and with their sales combined, take down mighty Kratos.

01. God of War III (PS3) – 1,100,000
02. Pokemon SoulSilver (DS) – 1,020,000
03. Final Fantasy XIII (PS3) – 828,200
04. Battlefield: Bad Company 2 (Xbox 360) – 825,500
05. Pokemon HeartGold (DS) – 761,200
06. Final Fantasy XIII (Xbox 360) – 493,900
07. New Super Mario Bros. Wii (Wii) – 457,400
08. Battlefield: Bad Company 2 (PS3) – 451,200
09. Wii Fit Plus (Wii) – 429,600
10. MLB 10: The Show (PS3) – 349,200

All things considered, according to the NPD, we spent $875.3 million on games in March and overall sales are up 10 percent over March 2009’s figures.

Other notables include “Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2” becoming the second best-selling game of all time, second only to “Wii Play” and “Battlefield: Bad Company 2’s” sales up 170% over its predecessor.
