Halo: Reach Sold 3.3M Stateside

That's right, Halo: Reach sold 3.3 million copies in the United States alone during the game's launch month (September), as seen in NPD's latest figures. Bungie's latest shooter -- which is also the company's last tribute to the Halo franchise -- is only the 3rd game this console generation to surpass 3 million sales within the first month - the other two titles are Halo 3 and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2.

Here's the chart for September (Physical retail only; all platforms incl. PC):

1. Halo: Reach (Microsoft - Xbox 360) 3,300,000
2. Madden NFL 11 (EA - 360, PS3, PS2, Wii, PSP)
3. Dead Rising 2 (Capcom - 360, PS3, PC)
4. NHL 11 (EA - 360, PS3)
5. FIFA Soccer 11 (EA - 360, PS3, PS2, PSP, NDS)
6. Kingdom Hearts: Birth By Sleep (Square Enix - PSP)
7. Mafia II (Take-Two - 360, PS3, PC)
8. Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions (Activision - PS3, 360, NDS, Wii)
9. Metroid: Other M (Nintendo - Wii)
10. Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 (Activision - 360, PS3, PC)

Oh and as for the hardware sales, here you can have a look how things were in September: "Xbox 360 enters the holiday season with four consecutive months as the #1 console in the U.S.," a Microsoft rep wrote in an email. "With 484,000 units sold during the month, up 37% from last September, a stark comparison to the other console platforms."

Yeah, in August 356,700 360s were sold. As for other platforms, NPD said both PS3 and Wii sales were down when compared to last September when the systems sold 491,800 and 462,800 units respectively.

Halo Reach is one of the best games for the Xbox 360.

Game was good, but never was a fan of Halo multiplayer, and that still remains.

If I had paid attention to the story, I might have enjoyed it more, but nonetheless it was still entertaining if at all repetitive. The Space Combat part was my favorite though still lame (THANKS TO TIE FIGHTER).

Multiplayer is just as lame as 3. I'd complain about it but I still have lols with all the morons who complain and bitch and moan when things don't go there way (I even laugh at myself when it happens).

I'm a little bit surprised Dead Rising 2 sold that well. I suppose people's memories of Dead Rising 1 as one of this generation's launch titles are steeped in pleasant nostalgia, thus prompting everyone to forget all of that game's many flaws.

Anyway, I'm just glad the sequel is on the PC too this time, so that now I can mod it.
  EricHalfBee: I liked Dead Rising. I can't tell if that's a rose ti…
Cheddar: I liked DR1. It was a unique kind of game. But no…
