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.”
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).
The last month it will ever be number 1.
Ps2 days return in t minus 4 hours. 360 had a nice little run but it's time is over after tonight.
Nice, 360 bowing out on top.
