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.
