Microsoft: Gamers Gave Us The Right To Disable Unauthorized Devices

Microsoft has looked at January's NPD numbers and proclaimed the Xbox 360 the winning console. Here are the raw numbers:

  •  Xbox 360 sold 381,000 units in January, up 48,000 units year-over-year.
  •  Xbox 360 is the only console platform to show year-over-year growth in January at 15 percent.
  • Total retail spend on Xbox 360 topped $551 million, making it the top selling console platform for the 10th month in a row.
  • During the month of January, four of the top ten console game titles were for Xbox 360 including: “Call of Duty: Black Ops,” “Dead Space 2,”“Dance Central,” and “Kinect Sports.”

Overall, though, according to the NPD group total video game hardware sales are down 8% from last January. Negative numbers seem bad, but when you consider how long it's been since any brand-new console has appeared, it's pretty amazing that sales have remained as high as they have.
