Phenomenal month for Nintendo during Super Smash Bros Brawl release month. PS3 and Xbox 360 continue their battle for second, and things should get interesting next month when both platforms get this year’s biggest game, GTA 4. The month was a winner for the industry as a whole, and everyone has something to brag about, with year-over-year sales up 57%.
