Monday, 19th October 2009 23:44 GMT By Johnny Cullen


Price-cuts and Slim’s launch have done wonders for PlayStation 3 in this month’s NPD: the console sold over 491k in the US September.

DS was the overall best selling hardware though, with sales of 524k. Wii sold 462k, Xbox 360 managed 352k, and there were sales of 190k for PSP and 146k for PlayStation 2.

Full list is below.

  • Nintendo DS – 524.2K
  • PlayStation 3 – 491.8K
  • Wii – 462.8K
  • Xbox 360 – 352.6K
  • PSP – 190.4K
  • PlayStation 2 – 146.0K

    A bumper month for the PS3, as expected. That said, the 360 sold much better than I was expecting it to as well. Numbers for everyone are well up this month, no?

    Yeah, everyone seems to have had a boost this month. I think the question for Sony is if they can maintain this sales level. With the 360 having cheaper models available I wouldn’t be surprised to see it back on top in a few months when the initial clamour for the new PS3 slim dies down.

    I agree with Bulk. I think this is only the thrid time in the history of co xb360 and PS3 sales that the PS3 has outsold xb360 in a given month. Nice to see it do better, but not really that big of a deal unless it puts a few months back to back to back. Sony had a good month, but what they need is a trend. And a long term one at that.
