Thursday, 12th November 2009 23:35 GMT By Patrick Garratt


NPD just released its October hardware figures, showing Wii in the lead in the US last month with just over 500,000 units moved.

PS3 dropped back to 320,000 consoles sold after its Slim boost to 490,000 in September.

Xbox 360 managed 250,000 machines through the tills. Last month’s data here. Here’s the lot for October:

  • PS2 – 117.8K
  • PS3 – 320.6K
  • PSP – 174.6K
  • Xbox 360 – 249.7K
  • Wii – 506.9K
  • DS – 457.6K

    Hmm Ps3 still outsold the 360, maybe the tide is turning.

    me thinks by January PS3 will be selling about the same as 360, if not less.

    me thinks that number will soar even higher when GOW3 releases.

    PS3 is gonna soar high in November since GoW Collections gets released. I think December and Jan. will be the real combats with no games to release exclusively for both systems (correct me if I’m wrong).

    Well I’m not sure about 360 exclusives but I know that MAG comes out in January and Heavy Rain + White Knight Chronicles come out in February.

    I wouldn’t be expecting much from either Heavy Rain or WKC (especially the latter). MAG could be a hit, but it’ll need good word of mouth and marketing.

    Is Heavy Rain really out in Feb btw? That’s good news, earlier than I thought it would be.

    Seems that rumours of the Wii’s demise were greatly exaggerated. :-)

    Plus FF13 in Japan will make it sell like 2 or 3m in bundles alone so it will be soaring
