Xbox 360 is best selling console, beating PS3 and Wii

Earlier in the week we reported that the Sony PS3 would become the best selling console by generations end — Microsoft will have none of it yet as the Xbox 360 was the best selling console in the U.S. in February. The Nintendo Wii was beating to the top spot by the Xbox 360 for the first time in two years.

February was a bad month for the games console market — sales were down by 15 percent. Console and game sales for the month were $1.26 billion — down 20 percent or $426 million.

Xbox 360 sales for last month in the U.S. was 422,000 units — the Wii sold 397,900 units, while the PlayStation 3 only sold 360,100 units. Let us not be put off by the PS3 coming third, this was a 30 percent increase over the previous year.

These figures could all change if users fall in love with the recently announced PlayStation 3 Move– which is said to be released by late fall. For details on game sales visit Yahoo News
