September NPD Numbers Are In!

The NPD is a great way to see the American sales of consoles as well as the top ten games each month. The only thing I dislike is that the numbers of smaller games over the months aren't revealed to the public, so a game like Lair is said to be a "bomba" when in fact it sold 500,000+ over the span of six months. There's a plethora of other examples, but I think my point has been made. Now enough babbling by me, let's take a look at the results!
