NPD time: Madden NFL 10 outsells Wolfenstein in August

The latest Wolfenstein release didn’t sell well during its launch week. According to the latest NPD numbers, a mere 106,000 units were sold between August 25th and August 29th. The Xbox 360 version -- which we reviewed -- accounted for 59,000 of those units, while the PS3 version carried 30,000. In short, it didn’t beat Madden.

That comparison is relevant, actually. In August, Raven Software designer Manveer Heir offered to pay consumers for every copy of Wolfenstein if it beat Madden NFL 10 in sales. But that's not going to happen. According to the NPD Group, Madden 10 sold 1.9 million across all platforms. One million of those units sold were for the Xbox 360 version, while 643,000 and 424,500 were sold for the PS3 and PS2 respectively.

A sound spanking that developer Raven -- and certainly Heir -- saw coming. As GameSpot notes in their Wolfenstein article, it seems as though the studio prepared for bad sales by handing out pink slips to some of the game's staff shortly after the game shipped.
