PS3 3 Million Sales Behind Microsoft’s XBox 360

The race for 2nd place ( or 1st place, depending on how you look at it ), is heating up. Sony has released 1Q 2010 sales data, which fall between April 1 and June 30, and during that time Sony sold 2.4 million PS3s worldwide. With this news, worldwide sales of the PS3 total 38.1m.  A little while ago Microsoft released worldwide sales data of the XBox 360 revealing that the system has moved 41.7 million units worldwide.

Sony has a stellar first party line-up for the rest of 2010 and early 2011. However, with the introduction of the new 360 it’s safe to say the battle for 2nd place is going to be a close one.

Congrats to PS3, for largest year over year gains!

Two negatives from a sales data perspective:

NPD has delayed their public release of US sales data, which is understandable. They are serving paying customers, not us non-paying consumers. However, I imagine that they get a lot of publicity from this.

garaph.info has stopped updating their Japan software sales.
