First month... January... GAP now 3.9m and decreasing.

And PS3 was a bit undertracked in Australia for 2010 (about 200k).

360 shortages took up to 400k off sales in January. It would have been the best selling system for 2011 YTD had there been no shortages.

Those shortages are clearly not in Japan or Europe. and its likely that the 360 will continue to slide into 2010 numbers in Europe before the launch of the slim and before Kinect was released. Europe seems to be following the Japanese trend we saw last year where the PS3 outsold the Wii for most weeks of the year.

not sure what will happen in the Americas, Wii is still strong there and Kinect is selling consoles, only time will tell if those numbers remain the same or go down.

Yea, but the shortages affect 360 sales in its strongest region, and were talking worldwide gap. 360 will probably slide in EMEAA, but PS3 will slide in Americas, so the Gap really wont change that much.

One thin of interest, it's likely PS3 will outsell in Wii in EMEAA and Japan this year if Wii sales continue to slide. 360 will also outsell the Wii in UK, and maybe even the US this year. Depends on how much Kinect boosts holiday sales, since Wii gets a lot of sales in the holiday season.

Shortages or not the GAP is decreasing... and will decreased more after adjustments.

I disagree, I'm noticing that the 360 is outselling the PS3 marginally now that shortages have been met. It's likely that PS3 and 360 sell a similar number of units during the year. If the Kinect boost wears off and PS3 sales remain strong, PS3 might get a small lead this year, but that will be offset by 360 having stronger holiday sales. I say this because I feel Kinect will boost 360 sales in a similar pattern to how Wii sells, which is with headstrong sales in the fall.

However your free to feel what you like. I've accuratly predicted 360's rise to leading sales, and I don't think you disagree with me when I say that Wii sales will be weaker then the HD consoles during the non holiday portion of 2011.

What? Are you kidding?

In 2011 PS3 outsold the 360 week by week... the first figure show 360 > PS3 but in the next week PS3 was adjusted UP and 360 DOWN turn arround PS3 > 360.

Wait until next week to see this week number changed like the previous week.

PS3 is leading 2011 by 100k or more.
