Nah, EMEAA and Japan is on PS3 side so for it to happen BF boost for 360 needs to be gigantic.(like almost DS level).

I think it's pretty much safe to say that X360 sold less than 600k in NA last week. MS would have released press report and boasted how they beat Wii. Instead they only released only Kinect numbers (which were still really good). So if we assume that X360 sold less than 600k in NA I doubt it sold more WW than PS3. Of course anything is possible.

Of course. Remember, GT5 moved 360s by getting people to go to the store.




I think the EMEAA/japan gap will be quite big, im not sure the american market will allow 360 to offset that. Its possible though.



In my entire state GT5 pushed VERY few consoles honestly.  System is still selling well due to regular holiday boost but in terms of GT5 pushing hardware, it was very very small at least here.  Europe would have to be massive for GT in order to counteract Kinect.

In my opinion I believe the order will be as followed:

1.) DS

2.) Wii

3.) PS3

4.) 360

5.) PSP

I say this because black friday will boost all systems dramatically. However GT5 contributed to a massive spike in JPN sales and will have an increase in EMEAA as well. I expect all systems to do great. I know this doesn't really show anything but locally PS3s are kinda scarce while there are tons of 360s on the shelves. Especially Kinect.

:D I agree with you. I think EMEAA and Japan will boost PS3 above 360.

I actually helped a woman buy a PS3 today at my local Gamestop. I pissed the sales clerk off bad. He was trying to sell her a used 60GB PS3 for like 350 bucks. She wanted backwards compatability but I talked her into a new PS3 for 299.99. I could never work at Gamestop, that business is horrible.
