The gap was right about 2mil at the end of last year and stands at about 2mil right now.....I've seem so many threads about the gap closing, but see zero evidence of it.


Exactly I don't see what these threads are about. Everytime we get an update about numbers everything is staying the same and Xbox is around2 million ahead.

Cant compete with that triple ballin

OT: Good stuff for the PS3, maybe it can get the 2nd place if the decline in the next years isnt too big



LET'S GO KNICKS

honestly who gives a fuck. the gap is so small one could be ahead of another by 5 mill and it wouldnt matter.



PS3 will be first this generation.

They're referred to as the HD Twins for a reason. At the end of the day, they only thing that made them different was the exclusives, which both have their ups and downs. Let the 360 fanboys gloat about a 2mil/1mil lead and PS3 fanboys, let's stop worrying about it period. 2nd or 3rd place, you still enjoyed the shit out of your respective consoles, Do we truly give such a FUCK about a few mill in difference?



"Trick shot? The trick is NOT to get shot." - Lucian

I think all 3 consoles won, in their own way.

The Wii is first - to date - although I'm still not convinced that will last for the lifetime of the generation. That said, the console was very profitable for Nintendo.

As mentioned, Microsoft doubled their install base with the 360 and moved from being an also-ran to a legitimate contender.

The PS3 sold 70 million consoles so far and currently has the momentum. More importantly for Sony - and I think this is the aspect that too many people overlook - the PS3 made Sony's Blu-Ray format the HD standard. At the beginning of this generation, that was very much up in the air.



I think after adjustments, the advantage the 360 has will be less than 2 million for this year. Also, considering the PS3 is going to drop less next year than the 360 will, I see the gap almost, if not completely, vanishing before the holidays. Considering the PS3 will be getting a price cut next, and most likely a $150 Black Friday bundle, I can see them both being on par during the holidays, maybe the PS3 performing better. After 2014, the PS3 will remain 2nd.



How sad it is quibbling over a million out of many millions.

I will look at the positives.

X360 success is that it gain massive ground on it's second outing after xbox.

PS3 success is that even with a hefty price, uncertain start and a year lost to it's rival it has stayed close.

No matter how certain people spin it both Sony and MS wanted to win this gen and they made that clear.
The only thing you win for 2nd place is being the first of the losers...guess who said that.
