NPD Oct. 08: PlayStation Sales Down, X360 Up, Software Sales Good
Fueled by the release of Fable II, the Xbox 360 moved another 371k systems. But the Nintendo Wii has touched the clouds of heaven with 803k sold, fueled by absolutely nothing new, meanwhile the DS sold 491k. On the software front, Sony's Socom and LittleBigPlanet did very well: Socom sold 231k copies, and LittleBigPlanet managed an impressive 215k, considering it was on shelves for a mere four days before October ended. Fable II led the software charts with 790k sold, and the Xbox 360 version of Dead Space came in at tenth with 193k. Interestingly, Fallout 3 sold 375k for the Xbox 360, but the PS3 version didn't land the top 10.
