360 has been big in Europe people always act otherwise.

It's big in the UK and Ireland, the other countries seem to be more favoured towards the PS3 (but the UK market is definitely the largest in Europe).

there were a lot of good and high selling games late in the year. not surprised that half of all sales happened late on

Is that a lot? Well, I know it's a lot, but how does that compare to what they were expecting?

the article says it's 13% lower than last year

You'd think it'd be better with all the awesome games that came out last year.
