Xbox 360 best-selling console in July

For the first time since Halo 3 launch.

Microsoft's Xbox 360 outsold Nintendo and Sony hardware in the US in July, according to sales data from NPD.

It was the first time the Xbox 360 was the best-selling console in the US since the launch of Bungie's Halo 3 in September 2007.

Sales of the Xbox 360, which more than doubled to 443,500 units, were driven by the release of the new Xbox 360 slim model and price cuts on older models.

The DS was second with 398,400 units and the Wii third with 253,900 units.

The PS3 followed with 214,500 units sold an increase of 76 percent - and the PSP brought up the rear with just 84,000 units sold. Time for that PSP2, Sony?

Overall hardware sales in the US increased 12 per cent last month.
