This month’s NPD Report drops today, with Microsoft the first to spill details. The platform holder shifted 261,000 Xbox 360 consoles over the course of the month.

The hardware sales apparently beat out the competition, making Xbox the top-selling console in the US for the 27th consecutive month. Global Xbox 360 console sales now top 77.2 million, with 1.3 million in he last quarter.

Microsoft also won the total platform spend tally again, with $402 million dropped by US consumers on hardware, software and accessories.

Although we’re yet to see the full charts, Microsoft said six of the top ten console games were available on Xbox 360.

Microsoft’s quarterly financial report came in earlier today, showing Xbox division revenue up 56% year-on-year and 46 million Xbox Live subscribers.
