does anyone know how many of the 360 software sales in europe are missing? you could add this if anyone knows.

and i don't think we will ever know how many sales the digital services had. maybe in a press release if it will reach a milestone like 250m or something for any service. maybe barozi has a clue about the arcade games but i believe we never got a real info about the 3000 or something indie games except for a minecraft clone.

i never read about psn sales numbers so that should be really hard.



you should also mention the years from its launch to its successor so we can understant the life of a console. and yes orbis and durango may aswell be put down as this year, even if its in brackets to show that its not factual.

Man, looking at these numbers reminds you how unpredictable this industry can be. Playstation hardware halved, Xbox hardware tripled, Nintendo hardware quintupled. I think many of our predictions about the 8th generation will be proven wrong.

There are some mistakes in OP... PS2 sold more than 1.5 biilion in software alone for example... the combined have to be over 2 billion too.

If i've made a mistake then point it out.  From the data I'm using it is right as far as i'm aware.
