For the 29th consecutive month, Microsoft’s Xbox 360 console maintained its grip as the No 1 selling console in the US last month.

Total retail spend on the Xbox 360 platform in May, which includes hardware, software and accessories, reached US$149.8m, the most for any console in the US, Microsoft announced.

The Xbox 360 sold more units than any other platform, Microsoft said, citing new data from the NPD Group.

During May, the Xbox 360 held seven of the top 10 console game titles, including Dead Island: Riptide, Injustice: Gods Among Us, Metro: Last Light, NBA 2K13, Call of Duty: Black Ops II, BioShock Infinite and Halo 4.
