The big news is the 360 being the big winner this month. Was it supply constraints for the Wii? New gamers jumping into the 360? People buying second 360s after their first one died? Well, that's just me, but who knows? We do know that software-wise the 360 is also the winner with four titles to the PS3 and Wii's three. New Super Mario Bros. Wii gets second place to the super-hit Bioshock 2. Still, a half million three months after release is nothing to sneeze at! Meanwhile, PS3 exclusive Heavy Rain gets a heavy amount of sales as tenth place on the big sales list. Finally, the DS remains high in the proverbial saddle with the most sales of all. Stay tuned for the top twenty coming later next week.
