Yep, after three years of trying to win out over its competitors, the Sony Playstation 3 was finally crowed the monthly top-selling video game console according to NPD.

The video game analyst reported that Sony took the first place in the most number of units sold with 491, 800 PS2 units in September. Nintendo’s Wii took the second place with 462, 800 units and Microsoft’s Xbox 360 came in last with 352, 600 units sold.

Although Sony’s numbers aren’t that much far from Nintendo’s, the news is still a reason to celebrate as this somehow proves that people are still willing to buy the PS3 – they were just waiting for its price to be a little lower. So when Sony unveiled the $299 PS3 Slim (despite it still being a hundred bucks higher than the Wii), gamers flocked to purchase units.

Will PS3 stay on top? I’m guessing it will, as long as Sony keeps giving awesome software to go with the unit, and of course, keep its price under the $300 level. What do you think?
