Microsoft's Xbox 360 leads U.S. market for second straight month [TechFlash]

You know, the larger form factor XNA device (compared to WP7)…

The Xbox 360 registered 443,000 units sold for the month -- more than double its total of 203,000 in the same month last year. By comparison last month, the totals were 254,000 for the Wii and 215,000 for the PlayStation 3, based on early numbers released to NPD clients.

Gamers appear to be embracing the revamped hardware and, in some cases, switching to the Xbox 360 in advance of the release of Microsoft's Kinect motion-based control system later this year, said David Dennis, a Microsoft spokesman. He called it a "pretty awesome month" for Xbox 360 sales.
