January #NPD’s: We sold 281k Xbox 360’s in North America in January – The 25th straight month as the top selling console in the US


That would mean that the 360 is undertracked here by 28k for the month and within the margin of error. Can't wait for the other numbers to start coming in :)



According to a new study; YouTube, Xbox.com, NeoGaf, N4G, VGChartz, IGN, GameSpot, GameStop, Facebook, Twitter, Amazon, All of Europe, FAMITSU, Japan, the rest of Asia and The whole of the Middle East among countless others are experiencing a Tsunami of people in love with Sony's gamings offerings.

NPD tracks Canada. It's just not included in the data that we usually get leaked from them.

2. Persona 4 Arena
3. Wipeout HD
4. Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2
5. Super Street Fighter 4

Nope. This January had one extra trackable week compared to last year(In NPD data). About 17% down. Still pretty good

Sorry, I misundestood you.



This is odd. Do we usually have them mentioning "North America" as this guy did right now? Normally, I think it's US.
This means either a) a typographical error or b) some really clever, under the radar spinning to look like 360's up YOY.

The console continues its dominance in the US market.

Microsoft has just revealed in advance of the January NPD report that its Xbox 360 console has once again topped the competition, selling 281,000 units in January, marking the 25th consecutive month that Xbox 360 has been the top selling console in the US.

Overall, more than $338 million was spent on Xbox 360 retail (including games, consoles and accessories) in January, while Xbpx 360 held 44 percent share of the current-generation console market.

"Xbox showed incredible growth throughout 2012, almost tripling its entertainment offerings with nearly 100 custom, voice-controlled Xbox LIVE apps, and delivering users with 18 billion hours of entertainment. Xbox has sold three times the number of original Xbox consoles, with 76 million units sold around the world to-date," Microsoft noted.
