Stats: The video-game console wars, one year later

Seattle Post-Intelligencer reporter Todd Bishop writes:

With the holiday shopping season set to start, a full year has passed since the head-to-head competition began between the Microsoft Xbox 360, Nintendo Wii and Sony PlayStation 3 video-game consoles. In terms of sheer demand, the Wii has been the runaway hit. But there are a variety of ways to assess the data. Here's a breakdown in four categories (and charts):

• Worldwide installed base
• U.S. installed base
• U.S. head-to-head (adjusted for the Xbox 360's 1-year head start)
• Worldwide launch-year results

So the 360 had a better first year. And that's with the the problems of the 360 being hard to find. I can see all the sony fanboys getting pissed about this one. So looks like I been right about the total worldwide numbers. The ps3 is a lil under 6 million, while the 360 is sitting at around 13 million. It's pretty safe to say that the ps3 will never catch up.

And I think the wii is on steriods.
