Well I know working part time at Best Buy that the PS3 sells a hell of a lot better than the 360. I can see it in the stock room. There are loads of 360's everywhere no matter which model, but the PS3 sells really well.

Supply (in certain EU countries at least) has been low for a while now. A lot of online retailers have been out of stock with no knowledge of new PS3 shipment dates.

So either the 40GB PS3 is really selling well (which it appears to do given the June numbers) and/or distributors and retailers have been keeping too low a low stock for quite some time awaiting the new model.

In the end it's nice to see the PS3 getting good sales numbers, I wouldn't mind a 50/50 market share between Sony and Microsoft sometime soon. More competition only benefits gamers.
