Sony has released its own comments following the release of February's NPD sales figures, noting a 120 percent year over year increase in PS3 sales and the continued strength of its PlayStation 2.

The PlayStation Portable also saw a 38 percent jump in year over year sales. Sony says its PlayStation 2 sold "more software units than any other console on the market" for the third consecutive month.

Its PlayStation Network has seen growth as well, with more than 3.3 million current users and 56 million life-to-date downloads. Sony says that in February there were 6.3 million downloads, just shy of the holiday-high 6.6 million in December.

Said SCEA president and CEO Jack Tretton, Consumers are recognizing the tremendous value of PS3 and we believe that Blu-ray becoming the high-def format of choice was the tipping point for many consumers. With monster titles like Gran Turismo 5 Prologue and Grand Theft Auto IV launching in April and Metal Gear Solid 4 in June, were demonstrating this is the year for PS3.
