August NPD: Software sales - Madden NFL 10 clear winner


The August NPD numbers are out, and while the industry as a whole was still down, Madden NFL 10 stole the charts by bringing in 928,000 followed by Wii Sports Resort w/WMP at 754,000.

Earlier, it was reported that EA CEO John Riccitiello was "disappointed" with Madden NFL 10 sales saying it was “discouraging”, that “one of our highest-rated and best-marketed ‘Madden’ titles in years is facing strong headwinds” during its debut.

  1. Madden NFL 10 (Xbox 360) - 928,000
  2. Wii Sports Resort (Nintendo Wii) - 754,000
  3. Madden NFL 10 (Playstation 3) - 665,000
  4. Batman: Arkham Asylum (Xbox 360) - 303,000
  5. Batman: Arkham Asylum (Playstation 3) - 290,000
  6. Madden NFL 10 (Playstation 2) - 160,000
  7. Dissidia: Final Fantasy (PSP) - 130,000
  8. Wii Fit (Nintendo Wii) - 128,000
  9. Mario Kart Wii (Nintendo Wii) - 120,000
  10. Fossil Fighters (Nintendo DS) - 92,000

Also of note, is that PS3 was the only platform to realize a year-over-year increase in total software sales and this is reflected in the top 10 list for the month which includes two PS3 games.
