Microsoft came out the clear hardware winner with Xbox 360 topping the chart for the 15th consecutive month in a row moving 371,000 units. The console’s current-generation share in the market was 42% and for the 13th consecutive month Xbox 360 held over 40% of console market share.
Sony used the NPD report as an opportunity to reflect on how the PS Vita “ecosystem continues to grow with impressive hardware, software, and peripherals sales among big-box retailers, smaller retail shops and digital,” two moths after its release.

I believe the PS3 was at 330k and the Vita at 200k (could be wrong about the Vita)

On the hardware front, system sales are down compared to 2011. Xbox 360 remains the best-selling hardware, and Frazier notes that Microsoft's console "is the best-selling console system for the last 15, and the best-selling hardware platform overall for the past eight months." According to Microsoft, Xbox 360 holds 42% of current-generation console sales and sold 371,000 units in March. In the month of March, the total amount of money spent on Xbox 360 at retail stores ($430 million) was more than the amount spent on PlayStation 3 and Wii systems combined.

Take with a grain of salt though.

I'm just taking numbers from a Neogaf thread.

Microsoft's Aaron Greenberg reports that Mass Effect 3 sold 943,000 units on Xbox 360, outselling the PlayStation 3 version 4 to 1.

That's because the PS3 has too many stellar first party exclusives to waste time with Mass Effect. ;)
