PS3 Outsold Xbox 360 Last Year
In case you missed it, supposedly Sony’s PS3 actually outsold Microsoft’s Xbox 360 in the calendar year 2007.
Let’s talk about numbers, shall we? Not just any numbers mind you, but sales numbers. Sales numbers that show Microsoft sold 7.73m Xbox 360’s in calendar 2007. While Sony sold 8.83m PS3s during that same period. The sources of these numbers are Microsoft and Sony
Up for debate is whether Sony’s and Microsoft’s numbers reflect shipments to consumers or shipments to retailers. Though I seem to remember that Sony switched their reporting method a while ago to report shipments to consumers.
If indeed true, I have to wonder why Sony isn’t making anything out of these numbers…
