The video sale numbers for February have been released by NPD. The Xbox 360 sold again better than the Sony PS3 console. In an interview with Gamasutra Microsoft's Aaron Greenberg said that their research show that they are converting Sony PS2 owners to the Xbox 360 console.
Microsoft saw a cool 53% year-over-year Xbox 360 sales boost last month. Reason enough to get a little cocky, but what to not like about the Xbox 360 these days? It is half the price of the PS3, Xbox Live is great and the game line-up is in good shape.
We are all waiting for Sony's next move for the Sony PS3. I do not think a price-cut alone will do the trick. Sony needs to also up the ante in games to distance the Xbox 360 with its hardware prowess.
