PS3 news: NPD: PS3 sales numbers are in

NPD’s video game sales data lockdown has meant we’ve had to wait a little longer than usual to get hold of some of September’s US hardware and software numbers, but industry analyst Michael Pachter’s just thrown us a PS3 flavoured bone.

According to the Wedbush man, Sony’s system shifted 312,000 units in the States last month, down 37 per cent year-over-year.

That’s comfortably ahead of Wii’s 254,000 sales (down 45 per cent year-over-year), but well short of Xbox 360, which moved 484,000 units (up 37 per cent year-over-year) to top home console sales for a fourth successive month.

Sony was more willing to chat publicly about PS Move post-NPD last night, noting its satisfaction with the new motion controller’s “extremely” strong start in the US, and 1.5 million sales in Europe during its launch month. is updated frequently per day with the latest Free Sony Slim PS3 news.
