PS3 will just fall short to the xbox

jamesmarkus87 (on 22 April 2013)

Thus far, PS3 has exceeded my expectations. I thought that its 2013 sales would've been below 360's 2012 sales, but I appear to be wrong. I'm definitely curious to see how well PS3 will perform this holiday.

Any reason to think PS3 would stay below 360 when it wasn't happening in the past years? If I remember correctly the 360 was only beating the PS3 during holidays and probably still losing in year totals.
