Top Ten Games in USA

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.

Other Commentary

  • 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.

    Nice researching. Interesting findings. Your avatar makes you look like Jerry Seinfeld by the way, @darrin lol

    Ok, if I were Sony I’d cut the price of the PS3 to $249 or even $199 when Move is released. It would give them momentum going into the holiday season and steal some thunder from the 360 & Halo: Reach.
