Love it or hate it, Halo 3 is a system seller. The September sales are in and Microsoft has cleaned up in a big way. Nintendo has had its second best month and the PS3 sales show why they badly needed that recent price cut.

Hardware sales
Xbox 360 – 527 800 sold in September
Wii           – 501 000 sold in September
PS3         – 119 400 sold in September

In software sales Microsoft did just as well shipping 3.3 million copies of Halo 3 and having 3 other titles in the top ten selling 500k more units. The Wii had 2 titles in the top 10 shifting 400k units and the PS3 had only 1 title in the top ten, Heavenly Sword, which sold 139k units.

The rest of the spots were taken by 2 DS titles and a PS2 title.
