Xbox 360 moved 281,000 units in January, according to an NPD report from the firm. While Nintendo didn’t send out its usual NPD sales figures last night like Microsoft did, a CNET report indicates the new console didn’t fair too well for the month.
According to Microsoft, Xbox 360 was the number-one selling console for the “25th consecutive month” with more than $338 million spent on Xbox 360 retail including games, consoles and accessories in January. The console held a 44% market share compared to other current-generation consoles.
Wii U, on the other hands, moved 57,000 units during the January period, according to a CNET report.
A report on NeoGAF states Vita sold close to the mid 30,000 mark.
Total hardware sales for the January period reached $205 million, and software sales were slightly under $393 million.
