February sales of video games and related hardware and accessories showed a 10% gain compared with a year ago, although total sales were down slightly from a gain of 13% in January. “The Xbox 360 realized its biggest nonholiday sales month, save for September 2007, when the ‘Halo 3‘ release brought in a large group of new owners,” NPD analyst Anita Frazier said. “Compared to last month [January], the PS3 realized the greatest month-over-month unit sales increase of all platforms.” InformationWeek (3/20) , Digital Trends (3/20)
