VGChartz writes: "After huge previous months for software, July was relatively quiet. 3 new games on PS3/360 took 6 of the top 10 spots for software, while Wii & DS sw had the other four spots. Expect hardware sales by week to be down from June.
For July, we expect NPD to report that:
-Wii sales in the USA remained roughly steady at 130,000 per week.
-Xbox 360 & PS3 saw a reverse from June (five weeks) to July (four weeks). More specifically, we expect NPD to say Xbox 360 sales in the USA were about 77,500 per week in July, compared to about 44,000 per week last month. PS3 sales moved the opposite direction in the USA. They were about 81,000 per week last month according to NPD, but we expect NPD to report that the sales rate dropped to 45,000 per week in July.
-DS sold close to 700,000 units in the USA this month in the USA.
-NCAA Football 09 was the top seller on Xbox 360 this month.
-Three Xbox 360, PS3, and Wii titles each cracked the top ten in a rare showing of software parity.
We arrive at our NPD USA estimations which can be seen fully below:
