Kinect bundles outsell Move 5:1

Microsoft wins software battle too.

Xbox 360 Kinect bundles outsold PlayStation 3 Move bundles by a ratio of five to one in the US last month.

Wedbush Morgan analyst Michael Pachter volunteered the figures to IndustryGamers, explaining "Under one-fifth of PS3 sales included bundles with Sony's Move controller, suggesting another modest month.

"Over two thirds of Xbox 360 sales included bundles with Microsoft's Kinect peripheral, as Xbox 360 Kinect console bundles again outsold PS3 Move console bundles by over five to one."

Pachter added that the most popular Kinect games easily outsold their Move counterparts.

Still, it's not all bad news for Sony. PlayStation 3 sales were up 12 per cent year-on-year for February to 403,000. The Wii managed to shift 454,000 and the Xbox 360 535,000.
