Downvoting it doesn't make it untrue.

Not like there was any hate for other platforms in my post.

3DS is finally up Year on Year! AND IT'S LOOKING TO GROW!

Between the announce milestone of 70 and 80 for Xbox 360 and PS3 363 days elapsed (19october2012 and 17 x 04 november 2013 october 2012 and 02 nomber 2013), in other words: the two consoles are selling exactly the same thing if we take into account this information, but here, the PS3 is always ahead by a considerable margin. Something is wrong.

the launch date, you have to remember that the Xbox360 launched first so every sale that it had until the launch of the ps3 was giving it 100% market share until that point and is now coming off of it at the end of life span.

He said PS3 is ahead, not 360. fmj - 360 sales have only started lagging after E3 2013, but July and August are slow months. PS3 gained very little over the last 12 months, but now since 360 sales are crashing, PS3 is starting to gain a lead.

PS3 gonna have 3 straight years leading the home console market. Now that's a strong finish. Though it won't truly be finished till it passes Wii.

This may or may not happen, I don't see PS3 having as long of a sales tail as PS1 & PS2 had because of the low price of a PS4.

A few months ago I do not understand the sales numbers of my great beloved vgchartz (im user since the beginning). The 360/PS3 issue remains unclear.
