The monthly sales figures are in from America, and it’s not pleasant reading for Sony. Ignoring the ridiculous Wii and DS sales (2 million, really, who the hell doesn’t have a Wii yet?) it’s the Xbox 360 sales that will sting the most, with over twice the number of 360s sold than PS3s. Still, combining the PS3 with the PS2 and PSP will surely give Sony room to spin this in their favour as we await the press releases from the brand holders.
Playstation 2 206k
Playstation 3 378k
Xbox 360 836k
Software sales follow a similar pattern, with poor sales for Resistance 2. Here’s the top ten across all formats:
GEARS OF WAR 2 (360) 1.56 million
CALL OF DUTY: WORLD AT WAR (360) 1.41 million
WII PLAY W/ REMOTE (WII) 796K
WII FIT (WII) 697K
MARIO KART (WII) 637K
CALL OF DUTY: WORLD AT WAR (PS3) 597K
GUITAR HERO WORLD TOUR (WII) 475K
LEFT 4 DEAD (360) 410K
RESISTANCE 2 (PS3) 385K
WII MUSIC (WII) 297K
Monthly NPD sales results always appear on GAF first.
