FEATURED VOXPOP oblivion437 Update: I was unfortunately not aware of Shamus Young's severe criticism of Fallout 3 available here to link in the original piece and I regret that.  It dovetails rather nicely with what I've written and it's much better executed than my piece.  I strongly recommend anyone...

Kinect Helps Xbox 360 Maintain Holiday Momentum

Posted on Friday, February 18 @ 10:05:48 Eastern by

The NPD sales figures for January are in, and thanks to continued demand from Kinect, the Xbox 360's momentum hasn't slowed since the monumental month it had in December. The PS3 and Wii aren't enjoying the same success, with both console's sales numbers in decline from the previous month.

NPD Hardware Sales (January 2011)

Console Units Sold
Xbox 360 381,000
Nintendo Wii 320,000
PlayStation 3 267,000

In related news, Call of Duty: Black Ops was able to maintain the top spot in software sales. New titles LittleBigPlanet 2, Dead Space 2, and DC Universe Online also made the top 10 list.

We expect Call of Duty: Black Ops to have another banner month in February, mainly due to a price reduction at retailers offering the best-selling title for $39.99.
