With data for the week ending June 14, 2008 now in, PS3 hardware sales have passed Xbox 360 sales in Europe . Despite launching over a year after the Xbox 360 did in Europe, PS3 sales stand at 5,450,869 while Xbox 360 sales in Europe stand at 5,415,053 units in Europe. The larger 'Others' region covers places like Australia, Africa, and mainland Asia in addition to Europe, which is why Xbox 360 is still slightly ahead of PS3 in Others. Additionally, Sony and Microsoft define 'Europe' differently in their financial reports, while in this case 'Europe' simply means the entire continent of Europe.
At 5,415,053 units in 132 weeks , Xbox 360 has sold an average of 41,023 units per week in Europe since launching in 2005. PS3 has caught the Xbox 360 in Europe by selling an average of 83,860 units over 65 weeks of sales in Europe, a pace roughly double Xbox 360 sales but still off the pace of Wii and PS2.
