The Xbox 360 outsold the competition in the U.S. last month and held down its position as the most popular console, reports Microsoft on its official blog. More than 270,000 units were sold in January, making the 360 the best-selling console 13 months running. Over on the software front, a handful of titles on the console made the top ten list: The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, Battlefield 3, NBA 2K12 and Just Dance 3.
In monetary terms, the software giant hauled in $301 million between hardware, software and accessory revenues. Microsoft also took the opportunity to again remind everyone that its platform was number one in 2011 — a fact that should be obvious given that it has now outsold the PS3 and Wii for a year and one month.
