I applaud Sony for getting the PS3 to second place and outselling the 360

With all the exclusives they have given gamers and not charging for online play, they really deserve to be out of last place. I also feel this speaks volumes for how the next PlayStation will perform now that Sony won't repeat the mistakes they made with the PS3.

Overall, I say they have done well for themselves this gen. Blu-Ray won the format war, they built up their library of exclusives with great series like Uncharted, LittleBigPlanet, inFamous, etc., and now the PS3 overtook the 360 in sales.

And for anyone who will be offended by this topic, this isn't a "Haha 360 sucks and is in last place with crap exclusives!!!" topic but merely a topic giving Sony the credit they deserve

Pretty sure console sales don't matter. In the end it's the attach rate for software sold. I'm happy too that Sony recovered from their awful start. I think it really benefited us in the long run as they seem to be trying pretty hard to please.
In fact, I hope MS gets off to a bad start next gen just so they can regain their focus again.

But these fanboy topics and reassurance posts are a little sad. What we should all be doing is making anti FFXIII and DmC topics instead!

LMAO, taking a random analyst's "forecasts" and treating it as the real thing, or are you seriously going to believe that the PS3 sold 7 million consoles in two months?

Shipped=Sold for Sony, which is the premise of the topic.

What's funny is that Sony has been cooking the books and combining the sales of PS2 and PS3, as well as PSP and Vita to hide the latter's dismal sales in their financial reports.
