Classic Game Room presents a CGR Undertow video game review of GUILTY PARTY from Disney Interactive for the Nintendo Wii from August 2010. Put your detective skills to the ultimate test in this mini-game driven budget title. This video game review features Guilty Party video gameplay footage and commentary.
The gaming industry had its worst August in the US since 1996 this year, but Microsoft has much to be proud of, with both the best-selling hardware and software. That's not to say the PlayStation 3 is in bad shape, as NPD Analyst Anita Frazier points the PS3 "has now enjoyed 13 consecutive months of year-over year hardware sales increases and that momentum is reflected in the content and accessories categories as well."
Let's take a look at the hardware sales:

Madden did some big numbers in August, and the gap between the sales on the 360 and PS3 shows just how much ground Sony has made up in the past year. Nintendo continues to put a good number of first-party titles on the board.
Madden NFL 11 on Xbox 360 with 920,000
Madden NFL 11 on PS3 with 893,600
Super Mario Galaxy 2 on Wii with 124,600
Mafia 2 on Xbox 360 with 121,600
New Super Mario Bros. on Nintendo DS with 110,400
New Super Mario Bros. on Nintendo Wii
Mafia 2 on PS3
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 on Xbox 360
NCAA Football 11 on Xbox 360
Wii Fit Plus on Wii
Things should look very similar next month, when Microsoft releases the sure-to-explode Halo: Reach to retail, along with a new version of the Xbox 360. Sony has the Move and its accompanying games to look forward to as well. Nintendo? Price drops on the DS line of hardware are coming, but don't expect much more sales momentum until the 3DS is released.
