Gamasutra have been pouring over the NPD results since January this year and they have come up with the top 5 software sales per console and how many units each of these titles has shipped.
By their own admission the figures are not entirely accurate and are also inclusive of American sales but it’s interesting to see that the console with no games has sold more software than anyone else.
Though to be fair the Wii may have sold the most but only one of it’s top 5 titles is actually from this year with 2 of them being from way back in 2007.
The full combined list is below and click through the link at the bottom for a more indepth discussion of the results and I would just like to point out that putting the combined list together was harder than I anticipated and I am sure someone owes me a beer now or something.
Apologies if the order is not 100% correct, Gamasutra did not release figures for every title just placements.
