Cowen analyst Doug Creutz has said Diablo III sold 1 million units at retail during May in the US. Citing NPD figures, Creutz said Max Payne 3 and Ubisoft’s Ghost Recon: Future Soldier both sold 400,000 units each, which is 200,000 units below what the firm estimated for each title. Despite the lower than predicted sales, both titles were the best-selling console titles at retail for the month. Thanks, Gamasutra.

Cowen’s Doug Creutz has told Gamasutra that Wii is just “fool’s gold” to investors, and that backing PS3 and Xbox 360 offerings should be taken more seriously.
“I think the Wii installed base represents, to a certain extent, fool’s gold for someone looking to invest in video game development,” he said.
“You’re rolling the dice on succeeding in a market which has proved very resistant to generating meaningful hits away from Nintendo titles and the music genre.”
Creutz also cautioned that just because Wii is currently dominating the market does not make it the best investment, and feels you have more control over your fate when choosing to invest in one of the other two consoles.
“The choice here is really between investing for the Xbox 360 and PS3, since their capabilities are fairly similar, or the Wii,” said Creutz. “I would caution investors and developers that the larger installed base of the Wii is really a bit of a red herring.”
