Here we see data representing the global sales through to consumers and change in sales performance of the three home consoles over comparable periods for 2007, 2008, 2009 and 2010.  Also shown is the market share for each of the consoles over the same periods.

"Year to date" sales for 2007, 2008, 2009 and 2010 sales are shown in series at the top of the table and then just below a comparison of 2010 versus 2008 and 2010 versus 2009 is displayed.  This provides an easy-to-view summary of all the data.

Xbox 360: UP Year on Year this week by 337k. UP Year to date 37.68%

Due to adjustments, the 360 has passed the 14 million mark for 2010. Nearly a whopping 40% up YoY and within 400k of the PS3 marks this as a monumental comeback. Up over 300k YoY, it's clear to see the X360 is the console going forward with the most momentum.

Wii: DOWN Year on Year this week by 174k. DOWN Year to date -10.58%

Wii hits its 20 million target for 2010, but sales are down YoY over 10%. Not too shabby given the competition and lack of any price cuts.

Playstation 3: UP Year on Year this week by 5k. UP Year to date 12.29%

PS3 stays UP YoY, again, impressive given that last year it had the slim and a price cut. PS3 just misses the 15 million mark but does achieve a new peak year. Up over 10% on an already steller year is a great achievement for the PS3 and Sony.

Wii is still selling good! By this numbers, I think 17M for 2011 is not a high prediction.

Looks like Wii could hit the 100M mark week ending 31st December 2011. Only needs 16M.

it's amazing to see the 360 having a peak year after 5 years, and PS3 holding up its new peak year at the same level. amazing sales for both consoles, imo, both consoles won this year head to head.

Amazing year for 360 but PS3 still holds on! 360 might be down in 2011 though as kinect & slim launch boost disappears, but Wii will be hard to beat with The Last Story, Zelda and the now unavoidable holiday boost...

Great year for all Consoles. I am definitely looking forward to 2011. I am really wondering how will Wii hold against XBXO 360 with Kinect and PS3 with Move. I am also wandering how will HD consoles do against each other. Holidays are over and while XBOX 360 has its momentum I am wondering how will it affect sales going forward, I am expecting high sales this week for XBOX 360 and Kinect because of $50 offer from Amazon and other retailers, but this should expire by end of week. Then we have lots of new games and amazing amount of exclusives for PS3, lets hope those exclusives will give PS3 a boost. Next 3 months will be extremely interesting in my opinion.
