Xbox 360 is #1 in March with 371,000 units sold

Microsoft continues to outsell the competition in the US

Microsoft revealed its hardware sales for the month of March today, noting that 371,000 units were sold in the US during the month, making the console the top selling system for the 15th consecutive month.

It was also the 13th consecutive month Xbox 360 has held more than 40 percent of the current-generation console market share. Microsoft said that total retail spend on the Xbox 360 platform in March reached $430 million, "the most for any console in the U.S. and more than the spend on PS3 and Wii combined."

The company expects to hold the momentum throughout the rest of the year; Microsoft said it plans to "deliver a strong portfolio of blockbuster titles, experiences and add-on content, including additions to the famed Halo and Fable franchises and groundbreaking experiences like Kinect Sesame Street TV and Nat Geo TV."

It's good to see Microsoft doing well now the electrical architecture issues have been sorted! My 360S has been solid for a year, and is quite cool running. Can we see sales figures for the rest of the world including UK? Sony's cheap looking PS3 Slim is still giving YLOD failures on eBay, I have one myself and it runs hotter than my 360S :(
