Isn't it a given that the Xbox would sell more as it has a bigger fanbase (due to it's bigger game library, online install base, and lower cost), you know...because it's been out 7 years longer?

On another note: I feel compelled to ask, but did people do this when the PS2 was still outselling the 360 when it first came out?

Dumb topic is dumb.

Indeed. It took the PS3 a couple of years before it started selling more than the PS2.

This, I don't get why people even bother. You know we might as well say every console and handheld have failed because they have yet to beat the PS2 and DS in sales.

Thanks to this this topic I sold my Wii U and bought an Xbox. Thank you, TC! I can now be happy knowing I consume the same type of entertainment as everyone else.

So strange that a cheaper console with a larger library is selling better.

Please give another example of a 7 year old console outselling a brand new one. 7 years is ancient in the video game world. Wii U is such a massive flop.

they have the PC version of Darksiders 2 running on WiiU in 1080 native at 60 fps and full graphics options on. Neither 360 or PS3 can come close
