The charts are there for everyone to see so there is no dispute.

From January through September

The PS3 is the number #1 selling console worldwide YTD

The region difference (+/-)

Japan - PS3 ahead by +1.02 million
US - 360 ahead by +1.03 million
Europe - PS3 ahead by + 0.81

Overall difference (first 3 quarters)..The PS3 by 800K

The US and Japan number offset each other and the difference is Europe which Sony of Europe has a well established foothold dince last gen.

Those are simply the facts..

So the PS3 is leading by a million ytd? That's quite a reversal, considering for the first 6 months the 360 was ahead by half a million.

The gap between the PS3 and 360 is what? One million now? A million and a half? They could be tied after Christmas this year considering 360 sales were down almost 20% for the quarter year over year. If that continues into the holiday's and with PS3 sales were enjoying a nice bump due to the price cut and some solid releases, looks like the PS3 will overtake the 360 in only a matter of months.

Not that there was any doubt it would happen eventually. The PS3 has been outselling the 360 consistently overall since it was launched worldwide.

@darthv72 below: Absolutely. I didn't care for the Wii personally, but I've always been a Nintendo supporter and it warmed my black little heart to see them regain the top spot. It's certainly been an interesting generation from a business perspective and from a fan of videogames.

i noticed this article is software sales. not hardware. Still, darkride, was there ever a finish line or mile marker these companies set for themselves? Overall they all did a great job of selling systems and games this gen.

The real winners are the gamers.
