Well ,if the 360 ends third as it seems and it was second last generation it isnt a big win for them.

 

Here are the current numbers, WW, from last generation (approx):

PS2: 119 m Market Share: 72%

XB: 24 m Market Share: 15%

GC: 21 m Market Share: 13%

 

Current numbers from current generation (approx):

PS3: 14 m Market Share: 28%

360: 19 m Market Share: 38%

Wii: 28 m Market Share: 56%

 

Yes, there are rounding errors, but look at the percentages. Sony went from having 72% to having 28% on their current-gen console. Nintendo went from 13% to 56%. And MS went from 15% to 38%. The numbers will shift over time, but there just isn't reasonable math available to suggest the PS3 will come anywhere close to having 70% market share, and MS has more than doubled their market share, and by Christmas will likely have surpassed the LTD sales of the original Xbox.

This has to be considered a big win for MS and Nintendo, although I would not suggest that Sony has "lost" this generation... they've just fallen from a very high perch.

 

EDIT: corrected the PS3 percentage.

 

 38+28+56 = 122%

WHAT!

He said there were rounding errors!  LMAO

WHAT!

LOL!  I entered my base total incorrectly into my calculator.  That has to be one of the WORST numeric mistakes in the history of these forums.    This is what I get for doing this while at work and trying to do 3 things at once.

Here are the REAL numbers:

PS3: 14 m Market Share: 23%

360: 19 m Market Share: 31%

Wii: 28 m Market Share: 46%

Total percentage = 100

So Sony went to a quarter of their previous share, and MS doubled theirs... happy? 

Why do I get the feeling my math is going to end up in someone's signature...
