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.
