Microsoft’s Xbox 360 notched a rare victory over the longstanding chart-topper Wii in February, marking a first since the Halo 3 launch days of 2007.

Data-tracking firm the NPD Group reported its findings today and revealed Microsoft sold 422,000 Xbox 360s in February, ahead of Wii at 397,000 and PS3 at 360,100 units sold.

Both the PS3 and Xbox 360 surged over January’s figures, with only the Wii dropping from 465,800 in January to the aforesaid 397,000.

  • Nintendo DS – 613,200
  • Xbox 360 – 422,000
  • Wii – 397,900
  • PlayStation 3 – 360,100
  • PSP – 133,400
  • PlayStation 2 – 101,900

Well now, isn’t this intriguing. A statistic I’d like to know though is how many Xbox 360 owners have purchased more than one system in their lifetime. I’ve shelled out for two. My first, a launch console, crapped out and Microsoft replaced it. This happened three others times before I just went out and bought a more reliable model. Anyone else do this?

    Wow fanboy much Why not just give credit when it’s due MS has a 3 year warranty so if your console breaks it’s fixed for free and those don’t count toward sales ( A informed person would know this). I congratulate MS for there BEST month ever especially in such a crappy economy.
