NPD has said Mass Effect 3 sales for March were 1.3 million units across all platforms, the firm told Joystiq. While it wouldn’t break any figures down for the site, Aaron Greenberg tweeted that Xbox 360 sales were 943,000 units for the period, out-selling the PS3 version four-to-one. Since NPD doesn’t take digital sales into account just yet, it’s worth noting digital sales across PC and PSN would make the core figure higher if included. NPD said in its March industry report sales for Mass Effect 3 were twice that of Mass Effect 2 during its debut.
NPD also told Joystiq Binary Domain moved 20,000 units during March.
