NPD August 2008It’s always amusing to see the spin the console makers put on the key monthly sales figures in the US, released by the NPD research firm.

The bald facts of the August stats just released are that Nintendo sold 453,000 Wiis (down more than 100,000 from 555,000 in July), Microsoft regained second place  with 195,000 Xbox sales (down from 205,000) and Sony brought up the rear with 185,000 PS3s, down from 225,000.
