PS4 leads February sales in the U.S, according to NPD

The latest NPD results for February have revealed that the PlayStation 4 was the top selling console in the U.S last month.

According to Sony, the PS4's cumulative life-to-date sales remain ahead of the Xbox One, despite the console often being sold out at most major retailers. It's not all bad news for Microsoft though as it managed to shift an impressive 258,000 Xbox One consoles, with Microsoft noting that the Xbox One is outpacing the Xbox 360?s sales during the same period post-launch by over 61%.

Meanwhile, the Xbox 360 sold 114,000 units,  holding 43% of the US home console market.

Software sales combined to make $318 million in revenue, higher than the $232 million made in January, but it's still low enough for games publishers to be disappointed. The drop is apparently due to lower sales of PS3 and Xbox 360 games.

Here's the best selling games for the month:
  1. Call of Duty: Ghosts (Xbox 360, PS3, Xbox One, PS4, Wii U, PC)
  2. The Lego Movie Videogame (Xbox 360, PS3, 3DS, Wii U, Xbox One, PS4, Vita)
  3. NBA 2K14 (Xbox 360, PS4, PS3, Xbox One, PC)
  4. Thief (PS4, Xbox One, 360, PS3)
  5. Grand Theft Auto 5 (Xbox 360, PS3)
  6. Battlefield 4 (PS4, Xbox One, 360, PS3, PC)
  7. Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag (Xbox 360, PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Wii U, PC)
  8. Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy 13 (PS3, Xbox 360)
  9. Minecraft (Xbox 360)
  10. Bravely Default (3DS)
NPD does not count digital sales, so there is an upside to the above figures.

Sadly it didn't do so well in Japan with the WiiU selling 557,901 over its first 3 weeks while PS4 sells 410,083 with the PS4 having drastically reduced sales after the first week. http://uk.ign.com/articles/2014/03/13/wii-u-sales-outpacing-playstation-4as-in-japan

At this rate it will do better but not by much since the Japanese are not really caring about home console nowadays
