Forums - Gaming Discussion - It is official, Xbox 360 has outsold PS3 worldwide

As I and other astute number crunchers would have suggested...the PS2 combining gave people an opening to claim PS3 was in the lead, but the numbers didn't supprt that.

 

Today Sony announces 80 million PS3's sold today Nov 6. Microsoft announced the same on Oct 17

Sony and MS both say sold when it's really sold to retail aka shipped to retail.

But since Sony officially says "sold" I edited the OP to say sold.

 

The important thing is the numbers are like for like between Sony and Ms.



So uh...how should we react to this.....OMG??

Didn't Sony outship Microsoft in Q1 and outsell them around Q2?

Never before has the fight for the 2nd and 3rd places been so ferocious x)

Tagged so I can come back and read the meltdowns later.

So 80m PS3's shipped vs 80.4m PS3's sold according to VGChartz. Sony is undertracking the PS3 big time.

I guess this is what counts as official now lol.

They have reached the same shipped numbers two weeks apart. Probably not easy to tell which is ahead in actual sales.
