US: 360 triumphs in hardware battle

Ben Parfitt
The successful release of Bungie’s hugely popular Halo 3 saw Microsoft’s Xbox 360 propelled to the top of the US hardware charts for the month of September, CVG reports.

Figures from the NPD Group claim that Xbox 360 sold 528,000 units in the period, slightly above the 501,000 Wii consoles that were sold.

Unsurprisingly, Halo 3 also topped the monthly software charts – with Nintendo duo Wii Play and Zelda: Phantom Hourglass claiming second and third spots.
