"Throughout this week, simExchange analyst Jesse Divnich is presenting exclusive Gamasutra analysis of January's hardware and software trends, using data from The simExchange, NPD, IGN GamerMetrics and GameTrailers. First up - despite alleged shortages, how the Xbox 360 is being overtaken by the PS3."
"While Sony declared a victory, Microsoft claimed that a hardware shortage hindered its January sales. To what extent a hardware shortage played is not calculable, but previous NPD and predicted simExchange trends indicate that the PS3 was in the process of catching up, regardless of any shortage."
