    Xbox 360 still on top while the Wii continues to fall



    The August 2010 U.S. retail videogame sales results are in, and we got the numbers! According to the data gathered by the NPD Group, the Xbox 360 continues to lead the hardware charts, posting another impressive numbers for the second month in throw, while EA's annual football showcase, Madden NFL 11, leads the software side.

    The Xbox 360 moved 356,700 units last month and is expected to dominate the charts once again with the impending release of Halo: Reach next week. The PS3 on the other hand sold 226,000 units in August, posting a five percent increase, and for the thirteenth straight month, showed a significant growth as compared to its sales one year ago while the PSP continues to dive down below. Meanwhile, on the Nintendo's side, things are not looking very bright as the Wii saw its lowest month of hardware sales since launch, selling only 244,300 units and the DS selling fourteen percent fewer systems as compared to the other month.

    3. Wii: 244,300
    4. PlayStation 3: 226,000
    5. PlayStation Portable: 79,400

    On the software side, EA's Madden 11 dominated the charts, posting a combined 1,814,400 units between the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions of the game while Take-Two's crime drama sequel, Mafia II, debuted at the fourth spot.

    Well, let's just say the Wii doesn't exactly have its "amazing" game library to support it...but this is old news...

    PS3 will skyrocket once the Move Comes out. Nintendo should be glad PS3 didnt release Move during PS3 release or the Wii would have been headshotted on the spot xD.

    In all honesty...I doubt casuals will even get the move, it's mostly gonna be the loyal Sony fans/fanboys, and while the sales may be decent to good at first...it will stop selling after a while because the Wii already dominates the motion sensing market...and it has all those exclusives the PS3 won't have (mario galaxy 2, Wii sports, so on...).

    I find it funny you sold the Wii and are currently in a Wii hacking forum, but regardless, I don't think the 360 or the PS3 need motion sensing, those are hardcore consoles, and in the end more expensive than a wii, people who aren't into gaming will look for something cheap (WII).

    With "looks amazing", you mean the graphics? the gameplay? the Wii has also a lot of shooters...resident evil ones and dead space extraction to be precise.
