NPD numbers for July console sales are in, and Microsoft should be extremely happy. For the first time since September 2007 (with the launch of Halo 3), the Xbox 360 has outsold all other gaming devices according to NPD. What also can’t be lost is the fact that the PlayStation 3 almost caught and passed the Nintendo Wii. Based on the last few months data, Nintendo might finally be reaching the saturation point with its console, despite bringing out new bundles and colors earlier this year. Check out the July 2010 sales:

444k - Xbox 360
398k - Nintendo DS
254k - Wii
216k - PlayStation 3
84k - PSP
