Deus Ex: Human Revolution

According to the NPD analysis firm, Deus Ex: Human Revolution was the top selling video game in August despite being in the market for just five days before the end of the August reporting period. The firm expects that Madden NFL 12 will take the top spot for September. Not only that, but they blame the bulk of losuy software sales in August on the fact that Madden was released in the September reporting period instead of August's this year.

NPD Analyst Anita Frazier also mentioned that sales of NCAA Football '12 were better this month which could be an "an indication of Madden fans looking to get their football fix elsewhere due to the delay in the release of that title.”


Here are the top ten selling games in August:

Software (New physical retail only, across all platforms including PC)

  1. Deus Ex: Human Revolution (360, PS3, PC)** Square Enix Inc
  2. NCAA Football 12 (360, PS3) Electronic Arts
  3. Call of Duty: Black Ops (360, PS3, NDS, Wii, PC)** Activision Blizzard
  4. Phineas and Ferb: Across the 2nd (NDS, Wii, PS3) Disney Interactive Studios
  5. Cars 2 (NDS, Wii, 360, PS3, PC) Disney Interactive Studios
  6. Just Dance Summer Party (Wii) Ubisoft
  7. Just Dance 2 (Wii) Ubisoft
  8. Lego Pirates of the Caribbean: The Video Game (Wii, 360, NDS, PS3, 3DS, PSP, PC) Disney Interactive Studios
  9. The Legend of Zelda Ocarina of Time 3D (3DS) Nintendo
  10. Zumba Fitness: Join the Party (Wii, 360, PS3) Majesco

**(includes CE, GOTY editions, bundles, etc. but not those bundled with hardware)

I think it's funny that Cars 2 is still in the top 10. What do you think of the NPD August 2011 results? Were you one of the people who picked up Deus Ex this month, or any of the other games?
