you can change something aesthetically, but the original "core" always lingers on, an "undying shadow in a world of lights"->(anyone know where thats from??). Oh, and these are just general thoughts on life...nothing specific.

Lol, Its like Hamburger hill up there.

Wow . . . this is actually really impressive. With 2008 shaping up to be a hell of a year for the PS3, I can easily see them overtaking the 360 this year.

Sony had the advantage of multiple price drops and new SKU's and being the new console on the block. I'll give it that. I'm impressed considering 360 had Halo3 and others.

I'll wait for official numbers from Microsoft before i go congratulating Sony.

i think it would be wise to wait for more reliable sources... this is using sony for thier numbers, and gamespot for the 360 numbers.

Gamespot just did the math. MS said they shipped 10.4 million units by the end of 2k6. They said recently they shipped 17.7 units from launch til the end of 2k7. 17.7 - 10.4 = 7.3. Its not that hard kids.

The_Engineer3374d ago

when will children learn??

corporations can't lie about numbers sold, they would get in major trouble and be prosecuted for fraud.

BISHOP-BRASIL3375d ago (Edited 3375d ago )

Better put your aluminized flameproof suit kids.

Anyway, is it fair to compare Sony official numbers and Gamespot numbers? Why not official SONY numbers VS official MS numbers? Or why don't get both from *Gamespot? Why don't get both by taking NPD (America) + GfK (Europe) + MediaCreate (Japan)?

I really don't give a crap who sold better, wii crucified both and we are going into a mini-games market... Weeeeee! ¬¬'

EDIT: Typo, where the '*' is, there was 'MS', but was intended to be 'Gamespot', my bad.
