Halo 3 remains top selling game in US; Xbox 360 sales still rising

VGChartz has just uploaded the new hard- and software sales for the week of September 30 - October 6. Not suprisingly, Halo 3 remains the top selling game in the US with an additional 562.000 copies in its second week, which brings its total to almost 3.2 million. Nintendo DS's biggest title of the year thus far, The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass, debuted on second place with almost 350.000 copies. Also, NBA 2K8 on the Xbox 360 outsold NBA Live 08 on the Xbox 360 and Playstation 2 with a debut of 116.000, compared to NBA Live's 102.000 on the Xbox 360. Microsofts exclusive title Project Gotham Racing 4 debuted with just 90.000 copies in its first week.

On the hardware side, the Halo 3 effect seems to still effect the Xbox 360 hardware sales as Xbox 360 hardware numbers jumped another 6% to almost 130.000. Nintendo DS was still the top selling hardware this week, despite a 5% decline to 135.000 copies. Nintendo Wii sales dropped 2% to 95.000 as Playstation 3 numbers remained at the same level with almost 30.000 units. Check out all this weeks numbers after the jump.

Keep it coming, I come on here just to see your comments. It makes me feel great about myself.
Try it everyone. If your feeling a bit down, having a bad day. Come and read Nasims posts, itll make you realise how lucky you are.
Good post 1.1 How about changing your name with Nasim Im sure itll suit him better.
Good going for Microsoft, if this keeps up after the PS3 price drops Sony wont be happy.
Suppose thats what happens when you come up against an even bigger, richer company than your own.

No matter how well Xbox 360 is doing worlwide apart from tiny Japan you still have little kids like Nasim running around screaming NO THEY ARE DOING RUBBISH!!!

Europe is the second largest place for gaming and guess what Xbox 360 is doing great there as well.

If you look how many Xbox 360's have been sold and how many are continuing to be sold vs PS3's sold and number of games as well you can clearly see Microsoft has a huge lead.

Wii is killing the PS3 in sales.

No correction needed what he is saying is the Wii is killing the PS3. Wii is not killing the 360 its barely beating it due to Japan pulling most of its weight.

PS3 is getting beat by the Wii with hardware and software and more.

nasim should look on the bright side! At least the PS3 is outselling the Game Cube! Now that is what builds champions -- LOL!

No, Wii is just killing Playstation 3 in sales. Xbox 360 is holding it's own.

I expect these sales #'s to continue past Xmas. Just my 2 cents though.

Never know what the Ps3 price drop will do. But I'm predicting...not much.
