Microsoft, for its part, celebrated barely overtaking arch rival Sony in the console wars after two months of lagging sales, mainly due to a “supply issue”. Microsoft sold 262,000 Xbox 360 consoles, ahead of Sony’s PlayStation 3 which found 257,000 customers – though the latter was happy to tout that sales of its PS3 have doubled over the past year, which, if you remember last March, is not quite the achievement.
Overall, March was yet another great month for the videogame industry with sales of consoles, games and accessories totaling a whopping $1.7 billion, a 51% increase from the same period in 2007. Check out the full lists of hardware and software sales here.
