Xbox Kicks PS3 Ass In Sales

First off with the title, do not leave comments saying I am a ps3 hater because I am not I love both consoles as equal. Just like I would with my future children. You can however call me a wii hater, as the wii is the equivelnet to that one friend your kid hangs around with nobody likes.

Moving on from that weird metaphor I got into, the sales figures for hardware in february is set to be announced this thursday and some games industry analysts have given their expectations and looks like Xbox 360 comes up on top.  This will be the second month in a row that Xbox 360 will have topped the sales charts and to be honest I think kinect has helped a lot.
The top selling games in february come as really no surprise to be honest with Marvel Vs Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds and Killzone 3, Call of Duty: Black Ops, Wii Fit Plus and Just Dance 2 expected to do very well.

Here are the sales figures for the hardware:
  1. 360 - 385,000 (-9%) / 400,000 (-5%)
  2. DS - 300,000 (-51%) / 330,000 (-46%)
  3. Wii - 305,000 (-23%) / 315,000 (-21%)
  4. PS3 - 310,000 (-14%) / 300,000 (-17%)
  5. PSP - 85,000 (-36%) / 95,000 (-29%)
