The NPD Group recently released their August 2013 report which indicated that the Nintendo 3DS had beaten out the Xbox 360 as the top-selling console in August for the US.

But that’s not all. It seems that EA Sports’ Madden NFL 25 was the top selling title for the month, shipping 1 million units in its first week (this despite its predecessor selling 1.65 million a year ago). Overall software sales were also up by 21 percent to $305 million.

Saints Row IV is in second place, followed by Disney Infinity (which shipped 294,000 units since its debut), Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell: Blacklist and Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition.

The NPD Group also revealed sales figures for various Nintendo titles, including Mario & Luigi: Dream Team (at number 6 on the top 10), which sold roughly 190,000 units at both retail and via digital download. Pikmin 3 sold 115,000 units at retail and digital combined while New Super Luigi U sold 120,000 combined units after making its debut at stores.
