Sony’s responded to last nights NPD results via ever-reliable SCEA senior VP of marketing, Peter Dille.

“In February, we had a tremendous kickstart to what promises to be another record year for the PlayStation brand with the launch of mega blockbuster hit Killzone 2, which ranked in the top five with only two days of sales in February and has been garnering extraordinary reviews, and a noteworthy 92 Metacritic score,” he said, apparently without taking a breath.

“We have no doubt this game will deliver a next gen experience and will be responsible for driving hardware sales throughout the year.”

He went on about what to expect for the console in the coming year.

“Expect an onslaught of unmatched entertainment offerings to hit across our platforms, such as genre-leading PS3 titles like MLB’09: The Show and inFamous, and new content via the PlayStation Network like movies and TV shows from NBC Universal, and an unprecedented line-up of third and first party exclusives to hit the PSP”, he said.

“We have no doubt 2009 will be another year of continued momentum and we remain confident in delivering the best entertainment experience to our consumers.”

Just for reference, PS3 sold 276K units, PSS 99K, and PS2 131K units in February.
