XBOX 360 Overtakes Wii As Top UK Console But Still Trailing Behind PS2

The Xbox 360 is the best-selling console of this generation in the UK, with 8.4 million sold.

MCV reports that Microsoft's console is regularly outselling all its rivals and will overtake Nintendo's Wii in a matter of days, according to Chart-Track.

Despite this, the Xbox 360 isn't the UK's best-selling console of all time just yet, that title is still held by the PlayStation 2 which has shifted over 10 million units since it was launched back in 2000. At a global level too, last we heard Sony's PlayStation 3 was just pipping the Xbox 360 in terms of boxes shipped.

Nevertheless, it's a positive sign for the company as it prepares to launch the Xbox One this November, as recent pre-order figures suggested Sony's PlayStation 4 had the edge. Whether or not this has changed following Microsoft's new policies regarding connectivity and used games has yet to be revealed.

I question the impact of this because nearly everyone I know has had to buy at least two. One person I know has bought seven.

All for ONE specific reason...

....just like all those PS 2's and PS 3's as well.......that's only if you want to be realistic. PS2 fail rate was pretty high and YLOD is a well known issue as well, but again I stress only if you want to be realistic and acknowledge facts.

Because they were too stupid to contact customer services for a free repair, and instead chose to run out and spend a load of money on a brand new console as soon as they encountered a problem? Thought so.
