The PS4 finished February as the best-selling video game console in the US, with sales estimated to be in the region of 286,000 units.

Microsoft confirmed that Xbox One "continues selling at a record-breaking pace" with 258,000 units shifted during February - approximately 90 per cent of the PS4's Feb total.

Wii U sales were up 25 per cent compared to February 2013, giving a monthly haul of around 82,000 units. However, this wasn't enough to outpace the Xbox 360, which totalled 114,000 for the month.

Call of Duty: Ghosts was the top-selling game of February, followed by The LEGO Movie Videogame, NBA 2K14 and Thief new at No.4. Square Enix's Lightning Returns is new at No.8.

Nintendo's Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze didn't chart in the Top 10, but sold more than 130,000 combined physical and digital units in its first eight days on the market.
