Market research group NPD released video game console sales figures for the month of Febuary, and the units with the fastest processors look to be selling the slowest.
Video game console sales in February 2008, according to research group NPD, showed a 19% increase in units sold year-over-year, with Microsoft's Xbox 360 selling the fewest among what is still, more than two years after its introduction, called the "next gen" console market.
This distinction is necessary because the sixth-generation PlayStation 2 console is not only still selling, but is actually selling better than its successors. The eight-year old system was reported by NPD to have sold 351,800 units last month. The PS3 sold 280,800 units, and the 360 sold 254,600.
The only next-gen console which beat the PS2 in sales was Nintendo's Wii, which moved a reported 432,000 units.
