The ps3 has sold as much as the 360 when the 360 had a year head start?

don't know why people bring up the year head start. people will eventually buy a console that they don't already have. a lot of people didn't want to buy a ps3 in the beginning because of the price, but that has now changed.

you also have to keep in mind that playstation had a bigger fanbase than xbox in the last gen. you can say that the xbox now has the bigger fanbase.

Anyone who buys a console from day 1 is an idiot. Not only might there be a price drop later or better bundles but hardware problems will also be fixed. Day 1 consoles always had hardware problems.

shipped =/= sold, though with japan being pretty much nonexistent it'll happen eventually


But Microsoft reports their numbers the same way don't they?

Sony has been covering up the Vita's abysmal sales by combining it with the PSP's, likewise with PS2 and PS3.

I'm a gamer, not a stock holder. So I don't care. And I own both anyway.

From my understanding they do.

I guess this means PS3 is no longer in 3rd place. Stanky will be heartbroken.

Xbox back to where it belongs, 3rd place

360 kinda sucks now tbh. There's nothing to look forward to after Halo 4 except Gears Judgement. PS+ poops all over Live Gold too.
