Its funny the UK trends the same as the US for consoles, where as in other European countries not so much. Im not sure its all about language either. I think a lot is Brand image.

Still its a bold statement on the run up to Christmas. Maybe MS have some deals up their sleeves.

Not surprising, at all.

Plus with Halo 4 and kinect coming up against the PS blunder book, it's not gonna be pretty.

HOWEVER I think this Christmas, the big winner will be the 3DS. Check me out in January when I come back and say told ya so.

I guess the bad lying internet gaming press like this site has helped the Xbox brand do better in the UK [i.e with their constant slagging off of the Playstation brand for the past few years] & it is such a shame the PS3 wasn't £149.99 in the UK now because that would have really shut up MS.

Yup, and I'd imagine all the people whose console has been banned for playing Halo 4 early will add to the 360's sales a little bit. I'd get a Wii U if Monster Hunter was out for Christmas but I'd imagine it's sales will pick up a bit around March next year when that particular game is released.

Some say he's half man, half fish. Others say its more of a 70/30 split. Whatever the percentage, he's one fishy bastard.

The "Britains Got Talent" final was the most watched TV programme in the UK this year so far.

Your point is? (my point is that popular = good is a fundamentally flawed theory more commonly attributed to Herd Humans)
It's just a ride.

Microsoft 'very confident' Xbox 360 is UK's best-selling console of 2012

I keep forgetting that the 3DS is a console, always mistaking it for a handheld.

Easy mistake to make though, eh :wink: ?
