Even though the Xbox 360 was released a full year before the PlayStation 3’s debut, it appears as though the two will soon be tied for lifetime sales. As of September 30th, 2010 the Xbox 360 has sold through 44.6 million units and the PS3, 41.6 million. If the current trends continue, sometime next year the PS3 and Xbox 360 will be tied. Naturally we have no idea what is going to happen with either Move or Kinect, but it’s pretty amazing to see the PS3 catch up considering all the trouble Sony had at launch.
If you’re like me, numbers mean nothing. We support every console, or at least any console where we’re given games ;) Now if you’re a fanboy of one platform or another, hopefully you can use this news as ammunition. Let the flame wars rage on!
