October NPD Numbers Release: Xbox 360 Dominates PLAYSTATION 3, Nintendo Smash Both Heads Together… Again

NPD has released their numbers for the month of October and well, if your a Sony fan, look away now. The Xbox 360 totally dominated on the HD front selling over 370,000 units while the PS3 only sold over 190,000k which gives the Xbox 360 a 2:1 ratio.

But of course, Nintendo dominates once again with the Wii selling a staggering 805k and the Nintendo DS selling 490k while the PSP sold 193k and the PlayStation 2 136k.

On the software front, Fable II sold over 790k to position itself as the top selling game of the month. But get ready for the shocking news, you’d expect LittleBigPlanet to chart very high in the charts as well as NPD charts but not so.

The game has only come in 4th in this weeks UK charts and in the NPD numbers coming 8th, being outsold by SOCOM: Confrontation with the LBP selling only 215k compared to SOCOM which sold 231k.

Of course, sales were naturally bound to be hit hard after the unexpected delay of the game near the end of the month but not this much. So will it see a surge in sales this month? It could but do bear in mind, next month will be the month that sees Gears of War 2 dominate the charts, surely.

Anyways, the full charts, hardware and software are after the jump.
