Microsoft released the Xbox 360 in November 2005 to get a head start on the competition. Although this was no match for the Wii, the publisher seemed content to keep Sony in a distant third place, something it has managed to do successfully since 2006. At this point, though, the lead dwindles by the month. Currently, three million units separate the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, leading us to believe that it’s only a matter of time before Microsoft tumbles into third place, where it’ll most likely stay until the end of the current generation.
