Yes, but xbox just sold 700,000 units over the weekend and Sony only sold 376,478 units over the week. It's neck and neck at this point, but even if Sony overtakes the xbox 360 -- Will anyone ever really acknowledge that they won this gen?


Xbox was released almost 2 years ahead of PS3 so yeah PS3 won

November 2005 to November 2006 is 2 years? Where did you learn how to count?

Now the true question is... How many people bought all three and then let two of them rot in a closet somewhere.

Does anyone have any real numbers? The PS3 70.2 million number is units shipped to stores (not sold) and I see no information on what the 360 number represents.

I would say Japan is a huge contributing factor to that.

only a fanboy would get joy from sales numbers.

and they call themselves "gamers" lol im glad i dont come here anymore pathetic.


So true. Looking at the way they're going back and forth about this posting links and stuff, you'd think that they're actual employees for sony and microsoft. Gamers are just damn pathetic now days. I dont even try to get into discussions here anymore like i use to.

Just look at the stupidity of this topic. Do you people think you're getting some profit for this or something? Lol really...

Who cares about the total number of consoles?

What matters is overall profitability and viability for the company. The more money the company is making from their game division, the more they will be willing to invest into more games for consumers and in that area Sony has lost and failed this gen.

The PS3 and Sony have bled billions since launch while Microsoft is rolling in profits. This has allowed Microsoft to come in and take many franchises that were former playstation exclusives and offer them on their system with superior graphics to their PS3 counterparts.

Due to Sony being pressed for funds, the PS3 has ended up with:
- Inferior multiplats
- lack of compelling exclusives
- loss of former PS RPG dominance (360 is now the RPG console)
- Inferior online marketplace
- Inferior online experience in games
- Delay of DLC (sometimes not even getting it at all)

When you look at the fact that the PS1 and PS2 were around 100 million at this stage, this is truly pathetic for the PS3. Microsoft made a big improvement with the 360.

Sony better get it right with the PS4 or this may very well be their last system.
