Microsoft Boasts Best-Ever Non-Holiday Sales Month For Xbox 360 In February

Microsoft Boasts Best-Ever Non-Holiday Sales Month For Xbox 360 In February

In advance of an expected monthly NPD report on new retail video game sales, Microsoft has revealed its Xbox 360 sold 535,000 units in February, making it the top-selling console in the U.S. for the second straight month.

The result is up 27 percent from the system's performance in February 2010 and is the largest monthly sales number the system has posted in a month outside of October, November or December, the company said.

Strong hardware sales fed into $475 million in total spending on Xbox products, including software and accessories, for the month.

Despite this, only four of the month's top ten selling games were available on the Xbox 360: Call of Duty: Black Ops, Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds, Bulletstorm and NBA 2K11.

Full results from NPD's monthly report should be available shortly.
