XBox 360 Outsells Wii and PS3

MSN is citing unnamed N. American retailer and analyst sources as claiming that XBox 360 outsold both Sony's PS3 and Nintendo's Wii consoles. The news story, appearing on the MSN website, claims that Microsoft's console took advantage of the Wii and PS3 shortages and provided a solution for many disappointed consumers who missed their chance to get one of the new consoles.

Until independent sources can confirm the figures behind this claim we will have to remain skeptical as to the exact nature and magnitude of Microsoft's triumph although we have to recognize that Microsoft took advantage of the shortages by introducing several tempting X360 bundles.

Said a few months ago that the ps3 would outsell the 360 this christmas. ha ha ha ha ha...Remember when they said that the 360 sales would cease come the Ps3 launch. ha ha ha ha....I just love how things have came back and hit them sony rabid fans in the face. Reality check time. The 360 is now selling at a faster rate since the launch of the ps3. Selling out in stores and production is in full stride. They live in eternal denial when it comes to the 360. 10 million here we come. Gears of War will be the biggest selling next gen title till Halo 3 comes out. Thanks Microsoft. Keep up the Fantastic Work.

Limited units probably only hurt the Wii, but what does it matter, Fanbase is Fanbase it's MS's turn to be lucky.

I decided not to do a preorder of the new consoles or wait outside Best Buy all night. I figured there would be plenty of 360's with deals out there for anyone who wasn't able to get a PS3 or a Wii on the first day. I didn't get a discount bundle like many did, but I got $100 rebate, which is just as nice and made the 360 a far better buy than either Wii or PS3.
