Madden Owns Gaming Sales in August

John Madden and his venerable franchise may be approaching antique status, but that hasn’t slowed down the impact the only licensed NFL game has on the gaming industry.

NPD has released its August videogame sales figures and Madden sits alone in the top spot. Not only that, Madden has snagged the number two and three spots as well to completely corner the market in August.

The full breakout for 10 ten numbers is as follows.

1. Madden NFL 09 (Xbox 360) – 1,000,000
2. Madden NFL 09 (PlayStation 3) – 643,000
3. Madden NFL 09 (PlayStation 2) – 424,500
4. Wii Fit (Wii) – 394,900
5. Mario Kart Wii (Wii) – 328,700
6. Wii Play (Wii) – 200,200
7. Soul Calibur IV (Xbox 360) – 174,000
8. Too Human (Xbox 360) – 168,200
9. Madden NFL 09 (Wii) – 115,800
10. Guitar Hero: On Tour (Nintendo DS) – 111,200

Also interesting to note is the Xbox 360 exclusive Too Human which managed to beat out the Wii version of Madden despite lukewarm reviews. It’ll face much stiffer competition if it wishes to remain in the top 10 for September.
