Despite Wii Fit taking the US number one in February’s NPD with 644,000 units sold, Street Fighter IV claimed a split-platform victory with 849,000 units moved over 360 and PS3.

Bit of a shock result for Killzone, there. Probably expected a bit more than just over 300,000 units.

Here’s the top ten:

  1. Wii Fit (Nintendo, Wii) – 644K
  2. Street Fighter IV (Capcom, 360) – 446K
  3. Street Fighter IV (Capcom, PS3) – 403K
  4. Wii Play (Nintendo, Wii) – 386K
  5. Killzone 2 (Sony, PS3) – 323K
  6. Wii Mario Kart (Nintendo, Wii) – 263K
  7. Call of Duty: World at War (Acti Blizz, 360) – 193K
  8. Mario Kart DS (Nintendo, DS) – 145K
  9. New Super Mario Bros (Nintendo, DS) – 144K
  10. Guitar HeroWorld Tour (Acti Blizz, Wii) – 136K
