Today the February 2010 NPD numbers were released and the end result was very successful for all three major platforms. While the Xbox 360 achieved something it hadn’t in years – toppling the Wii in sales – all three companies had a strong showing in general.
Of course, with the confirmed shortages of both PlayStation 3s and Nintendo Wii’s in North America, it’s not too hard to imagine why this may have occurred, but that isn’t something that should take away from the strong showing that Microsoft had in February. It’s good to see the industry striving as a whole and hopefully March is equally as strong.
