Once again it appears that the PS3 outsold the Xbox.

It wins the battle again but loses the war. when will they move from last place to 2nd? 2012? wii also launched last and they are still in 1st with no games :( wtf

gamingdroid2480d ago

Doesn't look like any war is won with a difference of 220k units between the next guy. That's essentially a rounding error.

Heck third place is only a million behind....

Tony-A2480d ago

A 10,000,000 unit-decline seen from the Wii between 2008 to 2011?

Wow, that's incredibly steep, especially considering something like the PS3 has only been increasing annually since 2008 and the 360 since 2009.

ApplEaglElephant2480d ago

millions of xbox are dead anyways from RROD.

so realistically speaking, more PS3 are alive.

reveals that the wii has had a decline year over year since 08.

PS3 has had an increase each year with the biggest being the difference between 08 and 09.

360 had a decline in 09 but has had an increase year over year since then.

What this really shows is that all 3 have sold extremely well and solidifies the commitment of support by the parent companies.

No 1st, 2nd or 3rd here as sales do not equal quality. The gamers are the real winners here.

edit: interesting that the jump from 08-09 on the ps3 was roughly 3mil. The same jump occurred for the 360 from 09-10 and both have sold strong since.

I wouldn't trust these numbers. Im sure the PS3 outsold the 360 but I think its by a larger margin. Vgchartz has been under tracking the PS3 all year.

maniacmayhem2479d ago

Why would VGchartz undertrack Sony ps3 only?

Just curious.

Game3s2480d ago

Why you feel the need to act like a fanboy.

Majin-vegeta2480d ago

Well looks like it's time to build me a fort before it starts>_<.

Tenkay232480d ago

2009 is when the PS3 began to take off with huge first party titles and the PS3 Slim price cut. Wii is dead now, so the 2011 sales figures are to be expected.

etownthree2480d ago

I curious to see some official sales numbers.

Plus the npd numbers for Nov and Dec.

I still think the 360 beat the PS3 worldwide in 2011

kikizoo2480d ago (Edited 2480d ago )

Because you are living in the delusional/denial world of xboyz ;)

vgchartz always undertracks sony's numbers, so.

"I wonder which statistic is more important? Year-on-year sales, or overall units sold? Hmmm... Year-on-year sales is more of an achievement from where I originate. PS3 has outsold the Xbox 360 worldwide every single year since its launch so I don't really get your point on "winning". "

you are right, but you forget 2 things : how many millions ms spend to sell less (if you want to be obessessed by numbers, like fanboyz, you have to talk about that, not only console sold)...and most important if you want to talk about a winner : games ! (and everybody knows that ps3 is winning every single year in that department)

ForROME2480d ago

WW numbers who cares before online came along or people getting their hole hurt when things got outsold

I live in NA, what happens here effects me and my systems of choice

What happens in Europe or Japan, nada

If I lived in Japan I would laugh at Xbox nice try but you failed

If I lived in Europe I would say this is close

I live in NA and I say SONY you got whooped up on this gen in NA and Christmas you got dominated, again

Its all perspective

thehusbo2480d ago

Nice spin. I see what you did there :)

awi59512479d ago

xbox is still 3 mill ahead and this gen ends next year
