We've seen oodles of showdowns
(regarding sales or otherwise
) between the current consoles, and it always seems that the financial numbers
games prove the most interesting (or downright incorrect
). While we'd already heard that the Xbox 360 didn't fare so well
compared to its predecessor, now we're hearing that Microsoft's latest has actually lost the first-four-month battle to Sony's PlayStation 3
-- at least in America. According to a spokesperson from NPD, "figures show that the PS3 is selling slightly faster in the US than the Xbox 360 did at the same stage in its release," which comes after the somewhat disappointing (but unsurprising) European release
. Unfortunately, the charts, graphs, and nitty gritty that never seems to follow such bold claims are expectedly missing in this instance as well, but we're sure a counter report of some kind isn't too far behind.
