NPD Group's June figures are out, with Microsoft and Nintendo both faring well, and having something to brag about to the competition. Nintendo should be happy that their 3DS has reached five million total sales in the U.S..

Nintendo sold 155,000 3DS units in the month of June alone, but Microsoft have their own achievement (unlocked?) to talk of. Microsoft shipped 257,000 Xbox 360 units in June, and they've also had the lead against all U.S. consoles for the last 18 months.

 

Nintendo sold 90,000 Wii units in June, and that Wii U will be here shortly and should give Nintendo a very big injection of sale numbers. Sadly, there aren't any Sony numbers to talk about, which is unfortunate.
