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.
