Top 10 selling software titles of September have been revealed. Halo: Reach ranked number one with Dead Rising 2 making it into Top 5.
lol loves this list, if it is multiplat you cant tell how much it sold on each platform, it will annoy fanboys LOVEEEEEEE IT!!!!!!!!!
1600 MS point cards outsold Move in Sept LOL
lol how dare a $20-$25 card out sell a $59 item/s(or $99 if where talking the bundle.)
lol, i think I will go play Halo: Reach, its so quiet in here
hmmm dont care what sells what, if i bought a great game and i was the only one who bought it at least id be able to enjoy it
I can't believe COD Modern Warfare 2 is still selling so well.
console gaming is casual gaming. name on the box means more then quality of the product. the uniformed console gamer isnt like that. neither is the uninformed PC gamer. i hope soon the informed console gamer and PC gamer fight for the same cause, put our differences aside and push for great games. but the day of the hardcore is over. very few titles are going to come our way that isnt shovel ware. rehashed crap from the last title that sold a ton. but when that great title comes, we will buy it in droves. and hopefully show publishers and developers alike that we dont want the same crap in a different skin.
we push you into shut the hell up. New concepts of gaming are over. All your gonna see is a repackaging of whats here. Theres nothing wrong with MW2 either.
are u kidding me mw2 is horrible. Its gamers like you that give companies confidence to produce rehashes and horrible games year after year.
so bad about it? ITS fun and really thats all you need. I likee BFBC2 over every shooter. What innovative games you think are worth something
for once i agree with you. Its the same crap over and over.
Seems a bit pointless without actual numbers. I wonder if Sports Champion managed to chart.
It makes you wonder now. Dead Rising 2 is number 3, but with combined sales you have to wonder which version sold best and how many of the Top 10 games only placed due to the combined totals.
Birth By Sleep outsold Mafia 2? Hahaha Nice.
*Sigh* NPD sucks now.
then it sucks.
I get what you mean, but to be honest. The whole purpose of NPD Reports is numbers. I mean the whole report is all about digesting sales figures to understand performance in N. America.
Why do you ppl hate numbers so much? I get that you don't own stock but damn why it has to be about you? I would like to know how well things are selling not just who's 1-10. It doesn't have to be all about you all the time ya know. So I agree with the guy above, npd does suck now. Before you ask no I don't own stock.
The number they quote are not the exact numbers. Numbers which other sites like VG use are numbers pulled out of someones ass. What's the point of having numbers when they are not exactly accurate?. What is the freaking point of arguing over inaccurate figures?.
It gives you a "general" idea. Not everyones world is "perfect" like yours buddy.
"What's the point of having numbers when they are not exactly accurate?." Because 'accuracy' does not exist in a binary state, and 'exact accuracy' is not something we even care about anyway. Do you notice how the numbers we get from Halo say 3.3 million and not an *exact* total of 3,328,792? If the margin of error is, say, plus or minus a couple thousand, does it matter? No, because that error essentially disappears when the number is rounded anyway. This is compared with pure guesswork, where someone might as well just say 'Iunno, the game probably sold like 5 million, right?'
Unless you work for the company sales are literally worthless to us. the gamer except for trolling xbots and sony fanboys...........
Many people like to be well informed regarding the sales of games and consoles, out of interest. It's true that it fuels fanboy arguments, which is why people see it as a negative thing. Gaming is more than just playing games now, it is an industry.
It's an industry for the companies involved, yes. But for gamers, it's just about playing games - or it should be. I never see the same kind of numbers-based posturing from movie and book fans. On-topic: I'm surprised at KH charting so high.
halo reach is monster
only in america............... japan barely noticed, and europe was basically regular
really modder? solar is trolling but the other guy isnt? ok? like if we all dont know that npd is america. did he need to bring up japan and europe? 1 sided much are we..
you're not very stealthy
LOL!!! this site only gets better and better. i bring up this point "america is the only region that matters. japanese dev's are making more "westernized" games to sell more. no american dev's are developing more "eastern" games to sell to europe and asia.? and is reported as "trolling". i guess logical thought isnt accepted on N4G.com anymore.
It's moronic to think only one region matters. It's not logical thought and the fact you think it is logical with no one agreeing just shows how illogical it really is.
both Europe and Asia are PC centric regions. Japan is a console centric reason. how is my opinion "moronic"?
Hmm probably because despite being outsold in the USA yearly the PS3 has caught up on the 360. This simple fact can be proven that when the PS3 released the 360 has approx 8 million lead which is now approx 5 million, this is despite being outsold in the US. That is how it is moronic.
360 only had a 5.5 million lead over ps3 when it released
Whatever it was, point is the lead has shrunk despite losing in the USA.
don't know cayal... But it's kinda Moronic to sit there and forget the dominance Sony had last gen. Yes Sony closed the gap a bit but I'm sure we all expected the ps3 to have the lead some 5 years later. You just can't ignore what the 360 has done in one gen.
Yes, this definitely takes all the wind out of the flame wars over sales data. But...is that a good thing or a bad thing for the console makers? I suppose it wont matter to them, but it does kinda make the industry reporting feel a bit lifeless. I mean, how can anyone (press or non-press) get impressed by being #1 when you really have no idea what number 1 means compared to #10. I am fine with combining all the sku's for the sales figures...but an actual figure would be nice even if its not broken out. I mean ....is Halo at number one meaningful or did it beat out #2 by mere hundreds of units? edit: So as I suspected with this new format, top dogs will immediately release their info. Per Joystiq article: Consider it the Halo: Reach bump. Previously, the Xbox 360 enjoyed three months of strong sales thanks to a hardware refresh, but Bungie's 343 Industries' franchise has been known to move consoles, so it's no surprise Microsoft dominated September. Greenberg elaborated in his following tweet that Microsoft sold 483,989 hardware units in September, "a 37% increase over last year." He also claimed the console is the only system with higher sales year-over-year." And from here...we may or may not hear specifically from other console makers...
I want the fanboy wars back. NPD sucks
yeah i miss the droids claiming how great the PS3 did only to see it fall behind the 360 in america already. it's fun laughing at delusional people.
Die fanboy wars, die.
I wonder what people would do if one month they all sold exactly the same number of units? I guess they'd find something to argue about.
I was always interested in seeing how much a particular game sold during the month through NPD tracking, but if there isn't any actual numbers attached to it, then I really don't care about these NPD lists anymore...it's like releasing a list of the Top 10 performing movies at the Movie Box Office without the inclusion of how much money each movie made...just not as interesting IMO. One thing for sure, the fanboy wars from the monthly NPD numbers won't be missed by me.
The reason I care (however slightly) about sales is because that tells us if there is likely to be a sequel a game. That is all.
Sports Champions no where to be found.
If the sales mean nothing to you why the articles that has more opinions are sells articles?
well someone has remind us about teh worldz... eveen though teh worldz says ps3 is 3rd...
Don't worry, it won't be long before someone chimes in with America is not the World!
starcraft 2 DESTROYED that!! Black ops will crush that even worse
This is not interesting as before.
