Welcome to the million-plus club, Resident Evil 5. Capcom's third-person survival-horror sold over 1.5 million units between the 360 and PS3 — a record-breaking launch for the property, according to Frazier.

While Microsoft topped the charts in raw software sales with three titles (they claim four, but leaving out the NDS is misleading) it's worth noting that Sony's continuing to chart more frequently in the top 10. Through much of 2008, the company was lucky to see a single title in the running. In March, they've landed three. Not bad for a system many have all but written off of late.

Important: NPD only tracks retail software sales. Sales recorded through WiiWare, Sony's PlayStation Network, and Microsoft's Xbox Live are not represented in this data.
