August 07 NPD: Software Sales

August was Madden month. And so it comes as no surprise that Madden dominated every other franchise for the month. The Xbox 360 version outsold the PlayStation 2 version, proving that gamers are willing to step-up into the HD world. Nearly 900k units of Madden '08 were Xbox 360 versions. Meanwhile 643k were PlayStation 2 versions. The PlayStation 3 version sold surprisingly well, moving 336k prints.

The game in between Madden ended up being the much highly praised Bioshock for Xbox 360. Bioshock sold 491k copies. Further down the chart, Metroid Prime 3 didn't sell as well as many had hoped. The aging Wii Play outsold it consideraby. And Guitar Hero II remains on the top 10, but only the PS2 version. Shockingly enough, the 11th best seller in August was the Xbox version of Madden 08 - it outsold the Nintendo Wii version, which was in 12th.

Now, for the 2-3 days that Lair and Warhawk were on sale in August, NPD tracked an impressive 47k copies of Lair sold, and fantastic 59k for the Warhawk w/headset bundle. It'd be interesting to know what's Warhawk's total sales, including the downloadable version on the PlayStation Network.
