NPD Feb 08: PlayStation 3 Outsells Xbox 360 Again, More

  February 2008's NPD results mark yet another triumphant month for Sony, as the PlayStation 3 has once again outsold the Xbox 360! This marks the second month in a row that the PlayStation 3 has done this. Additionally, this means that the PS3 is outselling the Xbx 360 in all three crucial regions (North America, Europe, and Japan). Sony's PS3 outsold the X360 by a total of 25k consoles in February.

   But, the next-gen war isn't the highlight of this madness. It is the PlayStation 2 that we should all be looking at, as it sold an astonishing 352k systems! That's absolutely absurd for a console that is eight years old. The Nintendo Wii continues to move like no tomorrow, with 432k systems purchased last month. The PlayStation Portable is selling decent figures, with 243k, but it cannot reach the greatness of Nintendo's DS, which was purchased by 588k!

   All we know is that things are looking extremely bright for Sony. With a Spring catalog of games that rivals some of the best Holiday line-ups of the past, the PlayStation 3 is about to make some crazy waves soon. And the withdrawal of HD-DVD surely made an impact for the PS3, as it makes Blu-ray the winner of the HD format war, ultimately helping sales of the PS3.

   Nintendo DS 587.6K

   Nintendo Wii 432K

   Sony PS2 351.8K

   Sony PS3 280.8K

   Xbox 360 254.6K

   Sony PSP 243.1K

Why does the DS sell so much? I know it's super cheap but is that it?(I know, it doesn't make sense for me either!)

P.S. We need a lot more exclusives so we can outsell the DS right?

The DS makes it very easy for parents to buy for their children as the DS is a product even parents will know their kids will enjoy, its cheap so parents can buy one for each child.

Though the PSP didn't do so hot this month, I bet its gonna making a killing for March's numbers, especially with all the people that picked up for GoW and FFVII:CC.

I was kinda sad to see the PSP on the bottom, but I'm extremely happy to still see the PS2 dominating, or at least doing very well.

people just buy the DS because it advertises and fits in so well for their kids... but the psp is far superior in graphics and gameplay
