Wii Maintains Console Lead; PS3 Passes Xbox
The February console sales numbers for the U.S. are in, and once again it’s a Nintendo sweep, with the Wii and DS consoles placing 1-2 overall and together selling 1 million units in the month.
Additionally, the Dallas Morning News reported Sony’s PlayStation 3 beat out the Xbox 360 by over 26,000 to come in second in the month among current-generation consoles. However, the PS3 remained behind the PlayStation 2 by 70,000.
Even before the results were announced, Microsoft was downplaying them, attributing soft Xbox 360 sales on shortages.
