February NPDs: X360, MW3 still on top

It was the same ‘ol, same ‘ol in the US last month; Xbox 360 and Modern Warfare 3 continued their predictable reign at the top of the monthly sales charts, the latest data from NPD shows.

The Microsoft console has been the top-selling console for 12 months in a row now, while Modern Warfare 3 hasn’t given up its number one spot since it launched last November.

Sony launched its PS Vita handheld four days before the reporting period for the month ended, but sold $10 million worth of accessories in that time. Uncharted: Golden Abyss was the most sold game for the system, making its way into the software top 20.

Overall, year-over-year hardware and software sales were down, 18% and 16% respectively.

The software top 10 follows:
1. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3
2. Final Fantasy XIII-2
3. UFC Undisputed 3
4. Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning
5. Just Dance 3
6. NBA 2K12
7. SoulCalibur V
8. Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
9. Twisted Metal
10. Battlefield 3
