Co-Op Rules September NPD Software Sales

10/20/2009 at 8:49 AM

We already knew that Halo 3: ODST has sold like gangbusters, and now we have further proof that the four player co-op title ruled the month of September by a long shot thanks to the latest NPD numbers.  While the game has sold over 2 million copies world-wide, in North America alone ODST sold 1.5 million copies

The other interesting tid bit of information was that The Beatles: Rock Band outsold Guitar Hero 5, with only the 360 version of GH5 barely cracking the top 10.  All told seven of the top ten in terms of software sales for September were games that supported co-op.  They say you want a revolution...
