Kinect bundles outsell Move bundles 5-1

Plus: GT5, Donkey Kong sales figures.

Xbox 360 Kinect bundles outsold PlayStation 3 Move bundles by a factor of more than five to one in the US last month, according to a retail analyst.

Wedbush Morgan's professional tongue-wagger Michael Pachter let the news slip to GameSpot, adding that a third of all PlayStation 3 sales were Move bundles, versus one half of all Xbox 360 purchases being Kinect pack-ins.

In other NPD-related news, a few more figures have slipped out following the newly data-free monthly US sales report released yesterday.

According to a NeoGAF source, Gran Turismo 5 sold 400,000 copies in its first week, compared to Donkey Kong Country Returns' 430,500.

Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood found its way into the hands of 1.14 million gamers in its first fortnight on shelves, while reported that EA's multi-platform racer Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit moved 417,000 units in the same period.

Finally, THQ's new uDraw Wii peripheral managed to shift a very respectable 190,000 units in its first two weeks on sale.
