Microsoft sold 535,000 Xbox 360 units in the US in February making it the best-selling console of the month, NPD has revealed.

That’s the second straight month Microsoft has taken the console crown in the US, and February saw a 27 percent jump in sales compared to February 2010.

The result was predicted by both Wedbush’s Michael Pachter and fellow analyst outfit EEDAR on Monday ahead of the NPD announcement.

The market research group also revealed that the Wii came in at 454,000 unit sales in February, putting it 14 percent up compared to the same time last year.

That figure also puts the Ninty system beyond the 35 million unit mark in the US, making it the fastest selling console in history.

All three consoles saw some increase in hardware sales compared to last February, however Sony refused to release sales figures.
