Wii – 5, PS3 2, 360 2, DS 1

Nintendo took six of the top ten games this month and Sony split the remaining four with Microsoft. It’s been a while since the 360 has had such a bad month in the top ten, but its top title alone did put up more numbers than the PS3 was able to between its two. The Wii is really just rolling with the software sales. Wii Play nearly dropped from the top ten…fanboys the world over almost had reason to rejoice. I would have liked to have seen both Punch-Out!! and inFamous put up better numbers, however. Hopefully they hang on in the charts next month, but it’s going to be tough.

I would have thought Punch Out would sell more than that. It’s still getting beat by year old games.

But Punch Out!!-to be on the list at all is pretty good. For most Wii gamers its a brand new franchise they’ve never heard of. Just think-there will probably be a sequel. Gulp!
