(Xbox 360, Wii, PSP, DS, PC, PS3, PS2) has dominated the NPD US charts for August. The game’s Xbox 360 version is sitting pretty at the top spot with a million units sold while the PS3 and PS2 versions are in second and third place with 643,000 and 424,500 units sold, respectively.

Nintendo’s Wii Fit gave a strong showing, too, getting the fourth spot with 394,900 units sold. At fifth is another Nintendo title, Mario Kart Wii, with 328,700 units sold. Here’s a complete list of the top ten games:

  • Madden NFL 09 (EA Tiburon, Xbox 360) – 1,000,000
  • Madden NFL 09 (EA Tiburon, PlayStation 3) – 643,000
  • Madden NFL 09 (EA Tiburon, PlayStation 2) – 424,500
  • Wii Fit (Nintendo, Wii) – 394,900
  • Mario Kart Wii (Nintendo, Wii) – 328,700
  • Wii Play (Nintendo, Wii) – 200,200
  • Soul Calibur IV (Project Soul, Xbox 360) – 174,000
  • Too Human (Silicon Knights, Xbox 360) – 168,200
  • Madden NFL 09 (EA Tiburon, Wii) – 115,800
  • Guitar Hero: On Tour (Vicarious Visions, Nintendo DS) – 111,200

There’s only one DS title in the top ten software, but the Nintendo portable is still number one in the August hardware sales, selling 518,300 units. At second is the Wii with 453,000 units sold, while the PSP is third with 253,00 units sold.

Rounding out the top five are the Xbox 360, selling a total of 195,200 units and getting the fourth spot, and the PS3 with 185,400 units sold. It’s worth noting that the Xbox 360 price cut didn’t affect the August sales as it took effect only this month.
