Although software sales dropped back in the US on a year-for-year basis in September, thanks in the main to the release of Halo 3 in 2007, NPD noted in its press release last night that two major PC releases were worth considering in the month.

PC games are not normally included in the NPDs monthly stats.

“Although PC games sales are not included in these numbers, there were two that should be pointed out,” said NPD analyst Anita Frazier.

“Spore realized sales of 406,000 units and Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning sold 274,000 which would put them both in the top 10 list of combined console, portable and PC games sales for the month,” Frazier continued.
