Well done MS. Saying the don't have the experience of other console manufacturers they have done very well this gen. The Xbox Slim is a great console, quiet, nice looking. Really looking forward to what they will do next gen. Roll on E3

None of it matters. They've both sold well and I'm sure the PS3 has sold well too. Compared to how the Wii was selling, it's dropped off massively.

I do remember reading a while back that Nintendo are relatively unpopular in the UK compared to other countries. This proves, if proof be need be, how much this country has gone to the dogs!

The 360 will be fourth or fifth placed globally. Not exactly pat on the back worthy

Wait, doesn't this mean that the world will end, nations will collapse and Nazi's will be riding Dinosaurs? Or was that gay marriage?

How can it be BS when the numbers dont lie? Its set to overtake the Wii in the US and over here, CVG even say they have breathing space globally. Yet this still isnt good enough for you?

Well done Microsoft, being number one in the UK is hugely impressive, it's an important market and to see the UK adopting Xbox as their brand of choice for gaming is wonderful.

How can they end fourth or fifth, its a three horse race. Anyway, MS have not been in the console race for many years. The 360 being their 2nd console and to achieve the sales they have is very impressive. Yes they had troubles with RROD but they corrected that and the slim has very few problems. One thing i would like to see them improve on is the exclusives, but i have a feeling they are holding a fair few back for Durango/Nextbox.

Oh CVG, some days your article comments are just magical. I'm having so much fun. This comments section and the 360 being number one in the UK, it's like Christmas. I love you guys.

@TykerD3 I never said the sales werent impressive. The numbers just need to be put in perspective.

"Yes they had troubles with RROD but they corrected that and the slim has very few problems" Not only did they deny it. They never apologized about it even.

I was going to question that but then I remembered one thing you didn't Stonecold...Stealth is a god. He said so himself.
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.
