Destiny, PlayStation, Super Smash Bros., and the Nintendo 3DS all had a good month in September, according the latest sales figures from NPD Group and platform holders Sony and Nintendo.
NPD's report, which covers retail sales only and doesn't include software included in console bundles, found that Destiny was the month's bestselling game, and was most popular on Xbox One. It was followed by Madden NFL 15, FIFA 15, Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS, Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor, NHL 15, Minecraft, The Sims 4, Disney Infinity 2.0, and Diablo 3: Reaper of Souls.
Although NPD's figures show that Destiny was more popular on Xbox One, this doesn't include those sold as part of PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 console bundles or digital sales. Sony did not provide any sales numbers, but said that Destiny helped make September the biggest month for PlayStation Network and that Destiny is currently the most-played PlayStation 4 game.
A statement from Nintendo says that Super Smash Bros. has been responsible for a jump in 3DS system sales, with a month-to-month 55% increase to 140,000 units moved in September. The game itself sold 705,000 in the United States during its first two days on sale, 135,000 of which were from the Nintendo eShop.
