Reigning once again — for the second month in a row — on the top spot is the Xbox 360 S. Everyone else did well enough except for the PSP. That poor PSP continues to sell abysmal numbers.

Madden NFL 11 grabbed the top two slots in the software listings with a combine 1.8 million units during its first month. Unfortunately, the other new game, Mafia II, did not fare so well with only 121, 600 units. Not surprising when you consider how terrible the game runs on the consoles. And once again, Modern Warfare 2 for Xbox 360 makes it back in the top 10 for software. In fact, it climbed two spots to #8.

P.S – It looks like we’ll be getting NPD numbers on a quarterly basis from now on.
