Nintendo wins otherwise-slow July NPDs

WSR and NCAA top sales, Wii sells 508k.

Nintendo had the best of another bad month for videogame sales in the US during July, topping both the hardware and software charts.

Wii Sports Resort, bundled with the Wii MotionPlus, was the biggest-selling game, doing around 508,200 units, although combined sales of the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions of NCAA Football 10 (613,900) would have toppled it if chart-compiler NPD didn't separate out the individual SKUs.

Nintendo can probably live with that though, having also taken every other place in the top ten except for eight (Fight Night Round 4) and 10 (EA Sports Active - and that a Wii exclusive), and with the DS and Wii the two biggest sellers in hardware terms.

Elsewhere, sales of Xbox 360 were at 202,900 while PS3 managed 121,800, but the industry was a bit depressed overall, with software sales down 26 per cent year on year and hardware down 37 per cent.
