Following initial results, NPD has provided Gamasutra with the full Top 20 U.S. console games for July 2009.

As previously revealed, Nintendo and Electronic Arts dominated the top 10 with six and four titles, respectively, and that strength continued throughout the expanded list.

On the Wii, Nintendo's mini-game and peripheral combo, Wii Play, took the #11 spot and its update to the classic boxing game, Punch-Out!!, claimed #15. EA's Tiger Woods PGA Tour 10 for the Wii ranked 12th when sales of the standalone game and Wii MotionPlus bundle were combined.

In addition, Nintendo's The Legendary Starfy for the DS returned to the chart for a second month in precisely the same slot, #19.

Two more EA titles made the list: Fight Night Round 4 for Sony's PlayStation 3 at 13th and NCAA Football 10 for the PlayStation 2 at 20th, the ninth iteration of that series on Sony's older console.

Other than EA and Nintendo, the publishers THQ, Activision Blizzard, and Take-Two Interactive filled out the remainder of the top 20 list.

Elsehwere, THQ's hit brawler, UFC 2009: Undisputed for the Xbox 360, made the top 20 for its third consecutive month, this time at position 14.

Activision Blizzard's movie-tie in game, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen - Autobots, slipped in at #16 while Prototype for the Xbox 360 dropped from the #1 spot in June to #17 in July. Finally, Take-Two's baseball sim Major League Baesball 2K9 (also for the Xbox 360) finished the month at 18th.

Nintendo platforms dominated with 12 titles in the top 20. Five titles on the chart were for Microsoft's Xbox 360. Sony's PlayStation 2 and PlayStation 3 each claimed 1 and 2 titles respectively.

The full Top 20 for July 2009 is as follows:
