Xbox 360 tops all console sales in April in US with 236,000


It’s the 16th consecutive month for Microsoft’s console

Microsoft has just issued its NPD reaction statement and revealed that the Xbox 360 sold through 236,000 units for the month of April, marking the 16th consecutive month that the console has topped all others in the US.

Overall, Xbox held 47 percent share of current-generation console sales, which Microsoft said is the 14th consecutive month Xbox 360 has held more than 40 percent of the current-generation console market share. Additionally, the company said that the total retail spend on the Xbox 360 platform in April (hardware, software and accessories) reached $261 million, which is “the most for any console in the U.S. and more than the spend on the other two current-generation consoles combined.”

Kinect Star Wars held the number one spot among titles in the US on Xbox 360, and the console held seven of the top 10 spots for US console games in April.

    these figures are very misleading, these maybe true, but looking on a global scale ps3′s are shipping 40000 more units A WEEK than xbox 360′s yeah the vast majority of this is coming from japan but in europe ps3′s sold 12000 more units last week alone and ony 5000 less in N.america. This is just Microsoft manipulating stats to make them look good, PS3 will have shipped more units worldwide by the end of the year, and will be the more sucessful of the 2 by the time next gen comes round.

    hows it misleading?
    this is stating US sales, so how is using US sales misleading?
    if anything your the one being misleading!
    this is one thing ill NEVER understand!
    US gives the middle finger to $ony.
    $ony says thank you and treats them like loyalty!
    EU says thank you $ony we love you!
    so $ony says ^%$# you and treats them like crap!
    screw me thank you, thank me screw you?
    how does that work?
    i thought you were suppose to reward those who reward you, not punish them!
    one of the many, many, reasons why i hate $ony!
    treat the US, the ones who shit on them, like royalty!
    and their true fans who are loyal to them $ony shits on them.
    totally fair!
    playstation has ALWAYS been more popular in EU!
    so why is $ony treating us like the gum under their shoe!?
