Southern Europe is Sony's Land

Only in three months since it was launched, PLAYSTATION 3 has became the preferred entertainment system by surpassing 216.000 units in Iberia (NdT: Spain+Portugal), being 194.000 of those systems sold in Spain", said James Armstrong, Senior Vice president of Southern Europe and managing director of SCEE. According Armstrong, "In this period, PLAYSTATION 3 has surpassed already X360 sales, which launched back in 2005, and it's tied with Wii, which launched in december of 2006, with a substantially lesser price". And he adds: "That sales figures make PLAYSTATION 3 the platform with faster market penetration ever

Since the xbox is selling better in europe as a whole lets do a story on the one part where it is not. And of course N4G will approve it.

Other than the UK, the PS3 outsells the 360 in Europe.

360 only sells in rich countries where gamers have enough money to spend in toys, apart from that people use to buy the best quality for a little more $$, and who wants to buy a defective box for $100 less ?

All i seen is PS3 doing well in place in the PAL regions

Too bad Northern Europe the average income is higher and UK is selling most consoles... And WAS a playstation nation, but now sells more 360's then PS3's.

Overal, in Europe the 360 is selling better then the PS3. World wide the 360 outsells the PS3 by a margin of 2. Funny though how Sony fandroids keep picking out minor markets to get some kind of succes stories out

Those below

Search it up dudes. In the UK, the average week sellings:

360 7-8k a week
PS3 5k a week

World wide:

360 400k
PS3 200k

Just go look it up. South of Europe may sell some PS3's, but overall the gap on the total units sold on both is widening. And I thought the PS3 would catch up?!

techie4026d ago (Edited 4026d ago )

"in Europe the 360 is selling better then the PS3" - as you well know, you have 0 proof of that. All you have is the number 1million ps3's sold in Europe since March 2007 (4months), and the number 1.95 million Xbox360's sold in Europe in the whole of 2006 (obv. 12 months).

Of course there has been growth this year, so those are the best numbers I can provide - but you have NO numbers to support what you said.

Please stop embarrassing the rest of us Europeans with your made up facts.
It's getting on my nerves.

rev204026d ago

That was impressive if it wasnt for the fact the console has been out for a year longer then the ps3, is cheaper then the ps3 currently and had a year to establish a large selection of games

With all those things init's favour only to be selling 2:1 in there favour is not as great as it sounds i would expect alot bigger ^^

Same thing in every numbers topic

funkysolo4026d ago

I'm pretty sure the PS3 will be on top with the price drop.

crck4026d ago

Trenton said ps3 sales have doubled since the drop. They were selling about 80k + units the last 2 months. The wii sells between 300k and 350k a month. But it would be great if it happened.
