The Nintendo 3DS is doing incredibly well. So is the PS3 and Xbox 360.

Any surprises there? Well for me, I am surprised to see the Xbox version of ME3 sold 4:1 to the PS3 version. I am also PLEASANTLY suprised to see that MLB The Show 12 is a homerun. Baseball games are not usually huge sellers, but The Show has proven it is the shiznit.

Some other numbers:
- Total spending on Xbox hardware, software, and accessories hit $430 million, more than was spent on Sony's PS3 and Nintendo's Wii combined.
- Sales of consoles and other hardware touched $323.5 million, a 35 percent drop from March 2011.
- High definition console systems fared better than many other hardware platforms
- Video game accessory sales declined by 8 percent to $222.5 million year over year. The industry actually sold more physical accessories than a year ago, but sales were down as a result of a drop in the average selling price.
- Although the NPD doesn't publicly share sales breakdowns by platform, Microsoft executive Aaron Greenberg did share that Xbox 360 sales for the space opera Mass Effect 3 were 943,000 units for the month.
