Top Ten Games in USA
(Japan + Europe + Other data not available)
Blizzard Announced that the Windows/Mac exclusive game, Starcraft 2, sold 1.5
million copies in the first 48 hours, which obviously, beats the top five NPD
listings combined. Wow! I would presume those are international figures, not US
only figures as listed below.

- PSP continues to sell extremely well in Japan and poorly in US.
- 360 Sales are unusually strong. This is likely due to the new 360 Slim SKU. July was the first full month of sales for the new SKU.
