Impressive figures for good ol Ps4

Why are PS3 sales included with the 360 against the PS4?

Edit:
I mean, it wouldn't be that 360 have dropped off so much, where the PS3 continues to sell, that their being combined to give the once "lead" system that it remains relevant?

Because PS3 and 360 still sold around the same amount, lifetime. This comparison to to show how well the PS4 is doing against both combined.

When such has never been done before, with the 360 coming off it's gen as the lead system, where the PS3 was second.

Only, last I recall, the sales gap between the two only shrank in the PS3 favor. To a point it could be said that the PS3 finished first while the X-camp it was a dead system. Nevermind that gen prior OG Xbox trailed PS2 by 100 million, lead the NGC by 2 million (?) and yet was solidly in 2rd place.

No one is really thinking of the 360 or PS3, less so how much a mess that gen generally was, yet here's this ghost of two competing systems combined aren't selling as well as one of their predecessors, while the number for it's competition are never brought up. Are by what numbers are on record are half of what the PS4's are.

In short; All this comes off as trying to say, "this side never lost."
