The latest NPD stats are out for July and Sony must be happy with their performance. While no one got even close to Nintendo.
The official ranking are as follows
- Nintendo DS – 608.4K
- Wii – 555K
- PlayStation 3 – 224.9K
- PlayStation Portable – 221.7K
- Xbox 360 – 204.8K
- Playstation 2 – 155.5K
However Microsoft did have one small thing to smile about and that was by topping the software charts for July (Ignoring the 555k Wii Sports that were bundled).
- NCAA Football 09 (EA, 360) – 397.6K
- Wii Fit (Nintendo, Wii) – 369.6K
- Guitar Hero: On Tour (Activision, DS) – 309.7K
- Wii Play (Nintendo, Wii) – 284K
- NCAA Football 09 (EA, PS3) – 242.5K
- Soulcalibur IV (Namco, 360) – 218.9K
- Mario Kart Wii (Nintendo, Wii) – 174.5K
- Rock Band Special Edition Bundle (EA, Wii) – 165.8K
- Soulcalibur IV (EA, PS3) – 155.8K
- Sid Meier’s Civilization Revolution (Take-Two, 360) – 147.6K
By constantly outselling the PS3 in the software stakes Microsoft is reminding the developers who is making the money for themâ€¦ Which means they will keep getting the top games.
This was has turned out better than anyone could ever have hoped for.
