It's looking inevitable that the PS3 will pretty soon overtake the X360 in lifetime sales. It put up a good fight, but despite a year's head start, the competition has finally caught up. The most powerful console of its generation has always finished in the top 2 in sales...

Yeah, but S-Smith bought 44 million of them so it's hard to judge fairly.
Here's a lockpick, now jog on.

just goes to show that people talking drivel on the internet is just that... people talking drivel on the internet.

i would love to know how many of xbox's 70 million are people who bought a 2nd, 3rd and beyond console because of the red ring of death too.

Bear in mind that the PS3 was released just over a year after the 360 release, this is actually impressive. So basically the ps3 would be around 8 million ahead if it was released at the same time as the 360.

Nether less good sales for both console.

This is surprising since all C&VG posts is how the Xbox is outselling everything, every month. Live and learn, I suppose...
I like things. The more things the better. I sometimes have three or four things at once. These are my good days.

That's all well and good but can we please take a moment to stop and pray for those poor 15 million souls that bought a Move.

If any are reading I've got a box with a Betamax, Zune, Atari Jaguar and Best of Vengaboys album in that you can have for a fair price.

Technically the ps3 is winning then? Being a whole year later and all, thats crazy, i've went through 3 xbox's and then started repairing them myself after that, worked for a good 6 months and died on me again to the point i had enough (bought an official wheel the same week it broke :( ), i'm not flame baiting here but i'm being legit, there must be alot more people besides me who bought a new xbox because microsoft said they're 1 year (but 3 year advertised) warrenty is out and all that crap, that made me think not only is it selling better because its the popular more cheaper console but also because of faults and re-purchases, from the older models with bad cooling, I still apreciate the console mind you and it was my first into this generation but i'm really surprised at Sony, i've not got a clue how they've managed that.

Thanks for the prayers El Mag, I Really don't know what made me think that was going to be successful.

Would be interesting to combine all of the failed Xbox 360's into a super computer.
