Not a surprise the XBOX 360 has done well at becoming the UKs market leader.

But form the sales numbers ive seen of the Wii 360 and PS3 all 3 have done well this gen.

So Microsoft say the 360 is the best selling console this year?
Wouldn't this of been better coming from someone who doesn't work at Microsoft?

Again lack of reading makes people look stupid. It says best selling in the UK which is a know fact the 360 sells more then the PS3 in the UK as we like the USA seem to like the type of games on the 360 better than what the PS3 offers.

I own 2 of each and a Wii as well as a PSV and 3DS so I don't really care who sells more unlike some people.

I agree lack of reading does make people look stupid. Show me where it's a fact Xbox has sold more than PS3 this year in the UK in that article.
I'm not saying it hasn't but where is the proof?
Also it's not even the end of the year yet so lets wait for the actual end of the year results.

A few days ago sony announced it would be the leader in France this year. They said "We can already announce that the PS3 is and will remain leader in France this year."

They didn't give any proof. They didn't wait until the end of the year. That's how it works.

So basically from the article Microsoft says GFK charts revealed that they are currently ahead in the UK for the calender year and that Sony will not catch them during the holiday season.

Sony believes with the new Slim model and the release of Wonderbook for the casual market that they are positioned to win.

So basically comes down whether the MS can win on the strength of Kinect and Halo 4.

or will Sony win out the day on the new model and Wonderbook.

Either way we will know in a couple of months.

PR bullpoo, yes it may be the best selling but top exclusives...what nonsense.

A lot of my friends got a 360 at the start of this gen cause they didn't want to wait for a ps3 and once one person saw the graphics they all didnt want to wait for a ps3.

I got my 360 only 2 years ago and I still havn't purchased a new realse for my 360 (though getting forza horizon) I have been buying the amazing exclusives they realsed much earlier this gen.

To be fair as someone who HATES Microsoft these days, even I must concede they have the number one exclusive this Christmas in Halo 4. Having said that, there isn't exactly much exclusive competition though in all fairness.
