Check financial reports

Yes the world. The 360 lead over PS3 is 5 million now.

Denial is ugly.

mcsm2661d ago (Edited 2661d ago )

Nah the lead of the 360 is declining its at around 3 million.

cochise3132661d ago (Edited 2661d ago )

The lead is about 2.5 million, this isn't 2009 anymore. The ps3 has gained much ground. PS3 has been out selling the 360 since the price cut to 299.

saying stuff like that is pointless without facts or even a link

its like me saying the dreamcast is the highest selling console of all time, and continues to sell well today

Ryo-Hazuki2661d ago

Had a yr start..9 million lead...always been cheaper and still is $199 model out there. And the lead is down to 3 mill. Whatever you say but since ps3 has been out its been leading worldwide

Why do you guys care?

@ Kingdoms

You do realize that when Sony released their 50 million numbers, it was as of March 29, 2011 right? (Source: ) Whereas the Xbox360's 55 million numbers was as of June 3, 2011 (Source: . So you're telling me that Sony stop selling PS3s completely after March? Stopped selling for 3 months?

Watch the disagrees even with sources....

patcher thinks USA represent the world..debt,inflation,jobless, and crime....fair enough

otherZinc2661d ago

You guys crack me up: "its Americas only". You guys do know the Americas hold 2/3rds of the market, right!

That is why NPD is the most important.

oops, spoke too soon

Xbox 360 is leading worldwide in 2011 as well. Check financial reports. 600k in the past 3 months.

Clarence2661d ago

No the PS3 has been outselling the 360 in 2011 worldwide. PS3 has Europe and Japan. 360 only has NA.

DiRtY2661d ago

You won't read it anyway, but here you have the numbers straight from Sony and MS.

Sony announced 50 million shipped end of march, MS announced 55 million shipped one month later. So a 5 million lead is an educated guess. Read it here:

kma2k2661d ago

Well with Targets Blackfriday sale this friday the xbox numbers should skyrocket.

Clarence2661d ago

You just proved my point. The PS3 hit 50m at in march. That's the end of Sony fiscal year.

It is now the middle of July. Last year the PS3 out sold the 360 by 2.1m. 360 sold 12.1 the PS3 sold 14.2m in 2010. M$ only talks about what the 360 does in NA. If they were outselling Sony worldwide you would see Aron greeberg, articles everywhere about how they are beating Sony worldwide.

When is the last time you seen or heard from Aron Greenberg.
