Analyst Michael Pachter has provided NPD stats regarding the sales difference between Xbox 360 Kinect bundles and PlayStation 3 Move bundles.

Apparently, the Kinect bundles outsold Move offerings 5-to-1 in the US for the month of February.

“Under one-fifth of PS3 sales included bundles with Sony’s Move controller, suggesting another modest month,” he told Industry Gamers. “Over two thirds of Xbox 360 sales included bundles with Microsoft’s Kinect peripheral, as Xbox 360 Kinect console bundles again outsold PS3 Move console bundles by over five to one.

“We note that the top selling Kinect software titles easily outsold their Move counterparts.”

While NPD doesn’t reveal hardware numbers any longer, Microsoft and Nintendo both volunteered unit sales: Xbox 360 moved 535,000 units, and Wii moved 454,000 units. Analysts reveled that Sony moved 403,000 PS3 consoles in February.
