not an official press release, and 'about' 400,000 units is not an accurate number

"PS3 is on a killing spree in EU. In just 9 months it has almost touched x360's sales"

After six years and 7 billion dollars lost Microsoft has made absolutely no progress in getting anyone but the same US Xbox owners to buy 360s this gen. Completely dead in Japan, dead across Europe outside of the UK, and surviving primarily on North America.

The 120 million gamers who bought PS2s for Final Fantasy, GT, MGS, and all the other huge numbers of Playstation exclusives are upgrading to PS3.

Shocking!

Tanod first off this comment section isn't the forum, so dont be stupid.

2nd Looks like the whole French survey where ps3 had 5% and 360 had 4% was totally wrong...yet we must not forget it wasn't a survey right? it was direct sales information even though right in the article it self it says all data was from an phone survey of over 1000 French gamers..lol wow

Oh and all those users are upgrading to ps3? hmm lets see 120m ps2 users, and 7 million ps3 users...compared to what? 13+m 360 users compared to what 30million+ xbox users...yeah the upgrade rate is VASTLY better for the xbox camp then it is the sony camp....And the Wii camps upgrade numbers are even better..so what you've just said its drivel and just that.

The Wood3321d ago

and you forgot that people dont play the original xbox anymore because they were shafted remember. There was no reason to play xbox1 especially since ms made xbox1 owners have to upgrade so my question to you is Where are the 20+ million that were forced to upgrade ??? Comparing that to ps2 owners who DO NOT have to upgrade is a little silly don't you think??.

Although this article can be seen as flaimbait its obvious that the 360 is doing ok in the UK and USA but everywhere else its not so successful which would explain why it is being caught even with a 9+ month headstart in many of the EU countries. Ill err on the side of saying that this is great but not surprising news for the ps3 as opposed to bashing the 360.

If you do not like this type of news you'd better stay away from n4g for the next year as its probably gunna be replicated globally and some ps3 fans are probably gunna be shoving it right down people like you's throats (no offence)

Oh, I for one do not believe that there are 120 million individual ps2 owners. Thats preposterous. Many people like myself just owned more than 1.

If France likes the ps3, then good for them. But a quick question for the people who can only speak English, how much fun is voice chat on PSN with all of these non-english speaking people?
