Crackdown leads game sales in February

GameDaily BIZ posted the just released February NPD sales numbers which show that Xbox 360 software is selling quite nicely. Overall, things are looking bright for video games as the industry is up 66% over last year with hardware and software sales on the rise. Crackdown led the month's sales moving 427K units, with other 360 titles like Gears of War and Lost Planet in the top ten. The Xbox 360 is also moving a fair amount of consoles beating out an under-performing PS3, 295K units to 228K.

You have to remember that Crackdown has only been out for about 2 weeks. So selling half a million copies is pretty amazing. Looks like the 360 is still outselling the ps3 and our big guns haven't come out yet; Forza 2, Mass Effect, Bioshock, Halo 3, etc... It's not looking to good for the ps3 in the next gen race.

and do you think the ridiculous Sony fanyboys will open their extremely bias eyes and realize that their precious PS3 is a welcome mat for the 360 even though the "big guns" have not arrived as of yet.

I've got Crackdown and yes it was too short but it was an excellent game. I reckon this game will sell a million maybe before the end of the month.

sure does have dismal sells figures! :~)127K not 228K

yeah seems strange that used the wrong figures for this month.

PS3 Die hard: well the PS3 will have good games coming at the end of this year and beyond and this will boost sales.

passionate 360 owner: so what the same goes for the 360 we will have good games all year and beyond and will at least counter the growth of PS3's/titles if now beating it.

I'm glad we got that out of the way.

sell better, though these are only NPD numbers and a lot of big companies don't offer up sales figures. I hope this game can get into the 1.5-2 million range. Maybe that will give some incentive for another Crackdown game. The story mode maybe short, but there is still a whole lot do in the game.

i wouldnt be disappointed, it sold the most in only 2 weeks.

I imagine that it wont sell as fast in March as it did in February so I am guessing it will sell 250k - 350k this month. Over a million by April.

I think it did very well for the time of year it came out.

and on the topic of npd figures, yes they are not perfect but they are all we have got.
