Pachter Gives His Pre-NPD Predictions

Industry analyst Michael Pachter has made his predictions ahead of incoming NPD data for last month's US games industry sales for the month of May and pins the Wii's Super Mario Galaxy 2, along with multi-format release Red Dead Redemption as the clear favourites, amongst other titles including Alan Wake and UFC Undisputed 2010.

Pachter also said software sales would be up by $500 million on last year, an increase of 11% which isn't too shabby. Hardware predictions put the Wii in first place with sales of around 330,000, followed by the Xbox 360 at 190,000 and PS3 at 175,000, all up year on year.

May's NPD data is late this month due to a hitch with NPD's system, but we're getting May's and June's on Thursday apparently.
