The NPD Group is reporting that physical videogame software sales were down 16% from March 2010 to 2011. "New physical retail software sales declined significantly," the NPD Group said today in a statement. "Software sales last year were marked by several marquee titles including Final Fantasy XIII, Battlefield: Bad Company 2, and God of War III, which were all million plus unit sellers in March 2010."
The two top selling games of March were Pokemon White and Black, followed by THQ's Homefront, though only 1.1M units sold of 2.4M shipped. Next in sales was Dragon Age II and Call of Duty: Black Ops, remaining on the charts yet again.
Part of the issues plaguing the NPD's figures, however, is the fact it doesn't count digitally distributed games. It'll be interesting to see the April NPD sales figures for Portal 2, which will not only be available on Steam PC but Stream PS3, too.
