October had two scrappy underdogs in Dishonored
and XCOM: Enemy Unknown.
The meticulous murder-em-up sold 460,200 units, according to the NPD, while the XCOM revamp from Firaxis sold 114,000 units.Dishonored
and XCOM: Enemy Unknown
launched on October 9 for Xbox 360, PS3, PC and through digital distribution, and later shared shelf space with big hitters like Assassin's Creed 3
, NBA 2K13
, Forza Horizon
and NBA Baller Beats
The NPD only chronicles boxed retail sales in North America, so we don't have a full picture of the sales performance of either Dishonored
or XCOM: Enemy Unknown
. We already followed up with 2K for XCOM
specifics, but the publisher told us it does not "comment on sales figures."
