Microsoft claims another month on top for the Xbox 360, with 393,000 units sold for the NPD's October sales period, 20% up year over year and, in the words of MS Chief of Staff for Interactive Entertainment Business Aaron Greenberg
, the system's "biggest October ever." Following up is ... the 3DS, randomly bouncing back two months after its price drop, with "over 250,000" sold, according to Nintendo.
Try to look shocked when we tell you that Battlefield 3
topped the software chart. The top six games on NPD's sales chart are all October releases, with Batman: Arkham City, NBA 2K12, Rage
, Just Dance 3
, and -- believe it or not -- super-hardcore, unfriendly RPG Dark Souls
all placing. Find the full top ten after the break.
