NPD Report: Month of September


September marked the start of the fall snowstorm of triple-A titles, headed by EPIC's Gears of War 3. Surprisingly enough, though, the shooter came up second on the latest NPD sales chart, though it can be argued that it had only been out for nine days before the month ended. So who captured the number one spot? Check out the top ten sales list below: 


1.    Madden NFL 12 (360, PS3, Wii, PS2, PSP)** Electronic Arts
2.    Gears of War 3 (360)** Microsoft (Corp)
3.    Dead Island (360, PS3, PC) Deep Silver
4.    FIFA Soccer 12 (360, PS3, Wii, PS2, PSP, 3DS) Electronic Arts
5.    NHL 12 (360, PS3) Electronic Arts
6.    Deus Ex: Human Revolution (360, PS3, PC)** Square Enix Inc
7.    Resistance 3 (PS3) Sony (Corp)
8.    Lego Star Wars III: The Clone Wars (Wii, NDS, 360, 3DS, PS3, PSP, PC) LucasArts
9.    Call of Duty: Black Ops (360, PS3, NDS, Wii, PC)** Activision Blizzard
10.  Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine (360, PS3, PC) THQ

**(includes CE, GOTY editions, bundles, etc. but not those bundled with hardware)

The Xbox 360 continued its dominance in the "console war," selling 438,000 units for the month. Nintendo moved more than 647,000 total hardware units: 240,00 units for Wii, 260,000 for 3DS, and 145,000 for DS. Like last month, Sony has not officially revealed its hardware sales.
