by William Schwartz


Last month’s NPD sales numbers showed that the industry software sales ticked up three percent year over year,  and were led by some bright spots like Gears of War 3 and Madden NFL 12.  With Gears of War 3 managing to sell over three million copies in just over a week, the game was slightly behind Madden NFL 12 which continued to prove that people like football in North America.

Though Madden had almost a whole month’s head start on the competition, the sports annual release beat out other popular titles like Dead Island, FIFA Soccer 12, and NHL 12, Deus Ex: Human Revolution, and Resistance 3 among others.

The top ten software sellers for the month of September are below:

  • Madden NFL 12

  • NHL 12
  • Deus Ex: Human Revolution
