The NPD Group has released their sales figures for both software and hardware for the month of August, with no surprise as to what software title topped the chart. Madden NFL 10 dominated the list of top ten software titles sold, with Batman: Arkham Asylum taking a good chunk of the chart itself.

August console software sales:

1. Madden NFL 10 (Xbox 360, EA Sports) – 928,000 units
2. Wii Sports Resort (Wii, Nintendo) – 754,000 units
3. Madden NFL 10 (PS3, EA Sports) – 665,000 units
4. Batman: Arkham Asylum (Xbox 360, Rocksteady) – 303,000 units
5. Batman: Arkham Asylum (PS3, Rocksteady) – 290,000 units
6. Madden NFL 10 (PS2, EA Sports) – 160,000 units

9. Mario Kart (Wii, Nintendo) – 120,000 units
10. Fossil Fighters (NDS, Red Entertainment) – 92,000 units


Hardware sales showed a renewed growth in the PS3, as sales increased from July’s 121,800 units thanks to the price drop of the console to $299. The Xbox 360 also saw a boost in sales thanks to its price drop as well for the Elite model to $299. The two competing consoles showed nearly identical numbers.
