The monthly NPD numbers are out, and on the software side, Xbox 360 exclusive Splinter Cell: Conviction was tops with 486K units sold, followed by Pokemon Soul/Silver in second place, moving 242.9K units.

Over all, sales for software dropped 22 percent to $398.5M, and only two titles released in April landed in the top ten – Conviction and SSFIV.

Here’s how the rest stacked up, with NPD apparently, withholding the actual figures for 6-10:

  1. Splinter Cell: Conviction (360) – 486.1K
  2. Pokemon Soul/Silver (DS) – 242.9K
  3. New Super MArio Bros. Wii (Wii) – 200.3K
  4. Pokemon Heart/Gold (DS)- 192.6K
