Console/Handhelds Split in September

According to the latest NPD data, gaming handheld and console hardware sales were split evenly for the month of September. GameSpot reported that “gaming hardware sales are now split 50-50 between handhelds and consoles, but the overall sales have been sliding for months. A primary reason for this is the slowing of Xbox hardware in anticipation of the Xbox 360. Sales of Microsoft’s original console were down 53 percent from last September and are down 26 percent year-to-date.”
