Resistance 3 month-one US sales at 180K

Insomniac’s PS3-only Resistance 3 doesn’t seem to be off to be best start in the US. According to the latest NPD data, the shooter sold only 180,000 copies during its debut month.

It went on sale on September 6th but landed at #7 on the month’s software chart.

180K copies is less than half of what Resistance 2 sold as it released back in 2008, despite being up against the stiffer competition, and wildly off the mark when compared to rival Xbox 360’s big shooter of the month, Gears of War 3.
