So the X360 sold 3.45 mill in the first four months of 2009, and the PS3 sold 3.0 mill.

That's just a 450,000 difference, or rufly 15%. Not much. The PS3 is doing fine considering it hasn't got a price drop since the same four months in 2008, while the X360 price has been dropped twice in the EU (and once in NA).

Luckily it seems like Sony can only afford to cut the PS3 price by $50 in 2009 (if that), because a $299 PS3 would probably crush the X360.

I admit that 2009 has started great for the X360 though, and there's a decent chance to come 2nd in this gen even if it's going to be a very tuff battle.

Who are you?

 



^ lol. Damn, I realize Im sounding too pessimistic for being a 360 fanboy.



The 360 sales were double in 2009 compared to 2007. I wonder if it can keep it up and see and increase next year. The Wii is only down slightly due to Japan sales being down a lot compared to last year. PS3 is down the most but not surprising bring the most expensive and costing the same as it did last year.

Kowenicki could you make one with each region as well?

Nintendo and Sony are fine they both have cards to play. I'm impressed with ms though. I reckon this holiday will be just like last between the HD consoles (unless gt5 ff and a price cut land) they know they need to be a certain amount cheaper than Sony and until Sony can get to mass market prices this gap is going to grow and grow. 300 quid is too much for most people.

 By "crush" they mean catch up on a weekly basis. 



Its libraries that sell systems not a single game.

the thing that intrests me the most is that the ps3 is supposed to be doomed but yet they are doing better in 2009 then what the 360 did in 2008 so far, also at a higher price tag may i add, stunning just stunning go ps3 go Sony.

I mean we all know how the end of 2008 ended for the 360 dont we, Imagine the ps3 :)
