GameDaily has coverage of the NPD numbers for March, which show a general continuation of trends we've seen since the Wii and PS3 were released last year. Overall, sales are up 54% across the industry, with the DS leading the pack by a healthy amount. "The [DS] sold through 508K units for the month. The PS2, likely fueled by God of War II, came in second with 280K units. The Wii followed with 259K — quite respectable but far lower than certain analyst forecasts, which had pegged it at around 400K. The Wii now stands at 2.1 million in the US. Microsoft's Xbox 360 sold another 199K, bringing its life-to-date total to 5.3 million in the U.S."
