February 2009 NPD Numbers Give Sony Reason to Celebrate

400°
300w ago - Sony was able to put two games on the top ten software sales chart in February, as well as sell a respectable amount of each of its systems. The big winner in software is Street Fighter IV, taking the number two and three slots on the Xbox 360 and PS3, respectively.

The NPD gaming numbers are in, and February sales enjoyed a 10 percent bump over last year, while gaming enjoyed an 11 percent bump thus far this year.

To quote: Sony has some great news this month, although the 360 still beat the PS3 in hardware sales. The PS3 sold 276,000 units, which is still a tiny drop from last year's 280,000. The PS2 sold 131,000 units, and the PSP sold 199,000 units. Three consoles, over 600,000 units shipped.

What has to feel even better is that Sony did a good job of putting software up on the sales charts. The PS3 release of Street Fighter IV came in third place with 403,000 units sold, and Killzone 2 came in fifth place with 323,000 units sold. Very good numbers, two games in the top ten, and some evidence that Sony is starting to shift some serious software. Excellent news.

All we need is to see that rumored price drop on the PS3 and some titles from that upcoming push of PSP software, and Sony could be doing some intense business in the market.
