The NPD sales numbers for February are in, and (apparently) they were pretty much in line with the market’s expecations for the month. Total hardware units were at 1.799 million units, which is 12.29% more than what was expected.

Sony’s PlayStation 3 outsold the Xbox 360, but both were dominated by the Nintendo Wii and DS.

Hit the jump for the interesting stuff, numbers!
