The 1 year head-start of the MicrosoftXbox 360 is still holding strong.
The latest estimated U.S. retail sales numbers of market research company NPD Group Inc. show 5.1 million Xbox 360, followed by NintendoWii with 1.9 million and 1.1 million SonyPS3.
The February sales numbers show that the Xbox 360 is still selling strong (228,000) and holding the number 2 spot behind the Wii (335,000). The Sony PS3 is 3rd with only 127,000.
With numbers like that Sony is not making any gains on Microsoft anytime soon. A Deutsche Bank analyst calls a price-cut for the PS3 critical for success, albeit knowing it won't happen any time soon. More details on GameDaily.

Kmart Black Friday
Black Friday is still a couple of months away, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t start getting prepared now. If you want to get in on the action in the best way possible it is important to have a good understanding...
The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
