The NPD Group compiles sales figures for the USA on a monthly basis. Their video game software and hardware numbers are closely watched, as it’s about the only way to get up to date independent sales figures for the industry. The October figures show the US game industry still contracting, with Uncharted 2 and  Borderlands both doing well in an otherwise poor month. NBA 2K10, Halo 3: ODST and Forza Motorsport 3 all charted, despite late November releases.

As for the consoles, Nintendo’s Wii sold 506,900 units, trailed by Sony’s PS3 at 320,600 and Microsoft’s Xbox 360 at 249,700.
