Dragon Quest IX was the bestselling videogame across Japan, the US and UK in the third quarter, according to joint data from NPD, GfK Chart-Track and Enterbrain.

And yes: it was only released in Japan. Here's the top five:

  • Dragon Quest IX (Square Enix) - 3,925,000
  • Wii Sports Resort (Nintendo) - 3,014,000
  • Madden NFL 10 (EA) - 2,612,000
  • Pokémon HeartGold And SoulSilver (Nintendo) - 2,068,000
  • Halo 3: ODST - 1,847,000

The stats-tracker added that combined software sales in the three regions dropped 6 percent in the quarter.

Japan was up 15 percent, compared to a 20 percent drop in the same in 2008. That said, year-to-date sales in Japan are down 9 percent.

Thanks, Edge.
