The NPD Group has just released their top ten best selling games list for the month of May in the United States. Which game topped the charts? None other than Injustice: Gods Among Us. In fact, it was the only fighting game on the list at all. It even managed to sell better than long standing champion Call of Duty: Black Ops II. This is it’s second month in a row at the top of the charts. Will the game’s popularity hold out long enough to grant it a third?

    I think one of reasons this game sold a lot because of the Power Sale they had at gamestop online. The game sold out online with a matter of mins I heard ^_^.
