NPD Group: Xbox 360 holds the No. 1 US console spot in October

In October, Xbox 360 was the No. 1 selling console in the U.S. market and maintained its lead as the No. 1 console in 2013, selling 166,000 units.

On Thursday, market research firm NPD released new statistics for the video game console market. NPD highlights from October include:

Total retail spend on the Xbox 360 platform in October (hardware, software and accessories) reached $283 million, the most for any console in the U.S.
During the month of October, Xbox 360 held five of the top 10 console game titles, including: “Batman: Arkham Origins,” “Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag,” “Battlefield 4,” “NBA 2K14,” and “Grand Theft Auto V.” (Xbox 360)

Nintendo sold 450,000 3DS's in October. #1 hardware for the 6th straight month. Nintendo, Rockstar (GTA5) and Pokemon were the top sellers. 360 was the top selling home console (reclaiming that position from PS3 last month).

What's there to hate? He's only speaking the truth.

2 new consoles releasing while the sales of 360 and ps3 havent been amazing this past year. Makes it easy to say 360s last month as nr1.

opinska, not only is he speaking the truth, it's pure logic when you consider the new systems coming out. Expect the last-gen CONSOLES to fall behind until there is another dramatic price drop. The XOne and the PS4 are going to dominate the charts.

That's what I thought you were getting at when I saw your post. New hardware is coming out so I also doubt the 360 will take the number 1 spot again if the new consoles can keep up with the supply and demand. This is the longest generation ever. I think most are excited for new hardware, I know I am, and will make the switch to the new generation faster than any previous gen.

2 hours 50 minutes 2 seconds to go!

Oooooo yea my system is coming in tomorrow at 8pm by Amazon. No need to camp and deal with other stresses in life.

Mhmmmm PS4 is #1 from this point foward. Hopefully PS4 will beat the 3DS. I think it has a chance to do it.

If your laughing to disagree I will atleast be right for this month. PS4 will sell several million alone in the month of November.

And PS4 seems like it can take a "PS2 like" domination this generation, and the PS2 is #1 by 4 million units compared to the DS1. PS3 is sitting at 80 million sold right now and considering PS4 is launching the same time as the X1 while be $200 cheaper than the PS3(no inflation adjustments).

It will easily sell 100 million units in its life time. 110 million would be the low end. So if you are not able to look at simple trends and math procedures then keep on laughing like an imbecile.

The PS4 will not beat the 3DS in worldwide sales, maybe NPD in the beginning. But worldwide the 3DS sells to much in Japan.
Skip_Bayless  +   596d ago
I said it has a chance to do it. Also with WiiU and X1 destined to sell less than its predesscors, some of those sales will go to the PS4.

It depends, they do have a $99 console for black friday. That's impulse buy pricing.
Gamer666  +   596d ago
Yeah, because X1 is going to take its position...
