Deus Ex: Human Revolution Was August’s Best-Selling Game In U.S.


Square Enix and Eidos must be very, very pleased. Deus Ex: Human Revolution got great reviews but it also sold well enough to be the best-selling game in the U.S. last month. Disney have reason to be happy, too, as they have three games in the top-ten U.S. software sales chart for August.


It looks like the Nintendo 3DS price drop kicked into effect, too. Nintendo sold 235,000 3DS systems and The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D jumped back into the top-ten best-sellers for August at #9.


Meanwhile, Just Dance 2 refuses to leave the top-ten and even had another Just Dance game accompanying it last month…
