The NPD Group has released sales numbers for the month of September and to no surprise the Wii is still on top of everybody's game, followed by the DS. Sales for the Xbox 360 continue to surge after its recent price drop, putting it in a solid 3rd position well ahead of the PS3. Star Wars: The Force Unleashed became the #1 selling title with over 600k units while Wii Fit sold over 500k copies. The games industry sales dropped 7% ($1.27 billion) compared to Sept. 2007's numbers, which did include Halo 3.
