So in the middle of every month, NPD usually announces the sales of the consoles and top selling games for platforms for the month prior. Now, though, NPD has announced that they will only supply us with the positions from the top selling games from all consoles combined instead of just one game from a single console, and even worse, they will not be showing hardware sales now!  NPD said if Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo wants to share their hardware data then the NPD would show their data on the charts, for example, Microsoft allowed their sales the be shown for September with 483,989 Xbox 360′s sold. You can see the changes below, as you can see no hardware sales and combined software sales with no sales numbers now. It was reported that this same thing happened a few years ago until changed back to what it was so we will see what happens from now with this new format.

  1. Halo: Reach – Xbox 360 – Microsoft
  2. Madden NFL 11 – 360/PS3/PS2/Wii/PSP – EA
  3. Dead Rising 2 – 360/PS3/PC – Capcom
  4. NHL 11 – 360/PS3 – EA
  5. FIFA Soccer 11 – 360/PS3/PS2/PSP/NDS – EA
  6. Kingdom Hearts: Birth By Sleep – PSP – Square Enix
  7. Mafia 2 – 360/PS3/PC – Take-Two
  8. Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions – PS3/360/NDS/Wii – Activision
  9. Metroid: Other M – Wii – Nintendo
  10. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 – 360/PS3/PCi – Activision

    It makes more sense to emphasize the games over the console anyway. I mean, after all, seven of the ten top highest selling games are on both the 360 and the PS3…
