Hmm, its interesting how much I don't care which system sells more....


Indeed. We should just focus on enjoying a game regardless of system.


That would require a modicum of maturity, and many on this board and others desperately struggle to find it in themselves.


The funny thing is that as a kid (well me anyway) I didn't really notice what console I was playing on since I was more interested in the game itself.
The console with the greater spec generally loses.

The biggest problem I have with ANY numbers coming out from micro&soft or anyone else (since they get their numbers from micro&soft) is that they count units SHIPPED, that INCLUDES ALL UNITS, such as repaired and replaced units. Now take THAT into account when talking numbers... What I really like seeing is when you compare day 1 to date sales for both systems, if you look at THOSE numbers the PS3 sold MORE than the 360 w/in the first year... This whole discussion is rather amusing though.

Microsoft still won in the sim racing category by a long ways. Actually, PC won that with iRacing, but were talking about the 360 and PS3 here.

Any unit that comes back for repair to Microsoft and is replaces is a -1 unit, then a plus 1 unit. Hence a balance of ZERO.

Xbox 360 sold 10.4 million units the first year despite a 6 month shortage.

PS3 sold 10.49 with a $200 price drop.

I don't think that really screams progress coming off the success of the PS2. The 360 still hasn't dropped $200 in price yet.

This was such a great read guys! Thank you fanboys, trolls, and idiots. You've made my trip to the toilet an enjoyable one. I would've brought my Wii U tablet with me but to be honest, I barely made it through the door. I was thinking I'd be bored but luckily you fanboys and trolls were there to save the day. Thank you.

Umm everyone does know sells don't tell how good a system is right? This is the same for games too. Look at the Wii, it sold TONS more then these 2 so I guess Wii is better then both now. Right? Right!?

Sales don't matter in a system or game, it's quality that matters. If I see good reviews for a system and tons of good games for it then it's good. If you tell me that sells determine if a console is good now then from now on COD and Kinect Adventures are the best games ever made. They did sell the most after-all.

Anyways personally I wouldn't be able to tell which system is the best right now since all 3 had something to offer. PS3's exclusives and free online, 360's awesome online network and multiplayer, or Wii's fun 1st party games. It's hard to choose from a quality point of view.

Xbox was released without HD for 2 years. I don't think it can even be considered 7th generation. Maybe it could be 6.5. But not 7th.
