06-26-2005 6:36 am -Aristotle

Talk about music to my ears! Gamasutra reported some impressive video game sales numbers for the month of May in which it is rather apparent that Star Wars Games continue their dominating chart performances. 

North American video game sales statistics for May 2005 are now available, and topping the NPD-calculated list was Pokemon Emerald, released on the first of the month, with more than 882,000 units moved, and a net retail income of over $30 million. Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith occupied the next two slots, with the PlayStation 2 and Xbox versions selling 490,000 and 378,000 units respectively. In fourth place, and significantly down from the big sales of the top three, is Microsoft Game Studiosí Forza Motorsport, with over 184,000 units, beating out the 150,000 unit-selling Midnight Club 3: DUB Edition for the racing crown.

The top handheld titles, Pokemon dominance aside, were Star Wars Episode III and Lego Star Wars on the GBA, with 87,000 and roughly 71,000 units moved each. Hot Shots Golf: Open Tee grabbed the top slot for PSP, with almost 50,000 units, and the familiar face Star Wars Episode III was the top Nintendo DS seller, with over 43,000 units moved.
