PS3 outselling both Wii U and XBO

PS3 this year have sold much more of XBOX ONE...

So now PS3 and 360 are tied with the former slightly in the lead? Wow this is a tight unnecessary race

Interesting to see the PS3 dropping faster than the Xbox 360 even though its a year younger and still has titles on the way.

We all know the Wii U's sales are terrible. In fact, sales data up to June 2014 show that even against old consoles PS3 and Xbox360, the WiiU only has a 26% market share in 2014. (15% against current gen consoles) Here is the MORE ALARMING fact for Nintendo. If you extrapolate the sales of the 3DS over 12 months for 2014, they have sales for the year of only 6.3 million units. That is a 55.5% year over year drop compared to 2013. Nintendo should be shitting its pants right now. Just for transparency, I own a 3DS and 8 games for it. This is just a bad sign for that company. Perhaps the market is trending away from Nintendo IP.

Holiday season. Can't compare H1 vs H2 because there isn't a gifting season.

Why would you extrapolate sales of the first six months? Are you not aware of the existence of Christmas and New Years? Have you seen those crowds in malls in December? Did you ever wonder why?

If you extrapolated the sales from January-June last year, you'd wind up with sales of 7.6 million for the 3DS. Did the 3DS sell 7.6 million last year? No? Did the Wii U sell 1.7 million? Did the Vita sell 2 million? Why would extrapolation suddenly make sense?

PS3 sells better than xbox 360 because the PS3s are of substandard quality - so the old PS3 have to replaced by a new one... The xbox 360 is working longer because of a good quality. The same to PS4 and XBOX one.
