Another month, another round of dismal data from NPD about retail U.S. video game sales. Game console sales fell 39% Y/Y in September, the research firm estimates, while software sales fell 18%. One bright spot for Electronic Arts (EA): Madden NFL 13 unit sales were 11% higher than the year-ago sales of its predecessor (previous). Sterne Agee thinks new video game sales will fall just 5% in October, as new titles provide a lift.
