The NPD’s latest sales report, which covers games software and hardware sales for September, has been making the rounds and while it shows the PS4 still in the lead, it was interesting to note the overall sale of software.

Software sales showed a drop from $480.6 million to $465.6 million, a three percent drop overall and it was NBA 2K16 that topped the charts over Madden NFL 16. This was followed by Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain, FIFA 16 and Destiny: The Taken King, though sales would be higher considering the NPD doesn’t track digital units sold.

NPD analyst Liam Callahan stated that, “The majority of hardware platforms increased their sales from August 2015 to September 2015 when comparing sales on a per week basis. All eighth generation consoles [which includes PS4, Xbox One, and Wii U] experienced double-digit growth when comparing sales on a per-week basis.”

Even more interesting is Super Mario Maker for the Wii U, which sold 445,000 units from September 11th to October 5th. Its current lifetime total is at 500,000 in the United States.
