Xbox 360 tops consoles in US in February with 302,000 sold

Microsoft's console continues its good adoption rate this late in the cycle

Many of us might be thinking about the next generation already, but consumers in the US continue to buy Microsoft's Xbox 360 console, which topped the competition in February for the 26th straight month, selling a total of 302,000 units.

Microsoft's had an incredible run in America, outselling the competition each month, and it's expected that the company will be unveiling its next-gen Xbox in the coming months (possibly as early as April). Sony, meanwhile, just held a huge press event in New York to start the buzz around PlayStation 4, which the company labelled as "the most open console ever." PS4 is confirmed to launch this upcoming holiday season, and many analysts believe Microsoft will be there as well with its new Xbox.
