This actually surprises me considering I heard nothing but Doom and Gloom about the PS3 until just a few years before the PS4 released.

I know what you mean. Out of the 8 years PS3 was out, it outsold 360 on 6 of those years

Yep, that doom and gloom back then was really dumb. The media was basically mainly focusing on the US, where the PS3 was being pummeled, so people started acting like the PS3 was a sales disaster. While in reality, the PS3 made up for it with strong sales in Europe and various other places.

yeah like McReally says, the PS3 was always outselling the X360 on europe and japan and at the end of its cycle it sold more than the X360 worldwide as seen in the graphics from this site, but the press only focussed on the US sales where it was one of the few countries were the X360 was always outselling the PS3.

When you look at it with an aligned launch the PS3 outsold the 360. But because they were for the same generation, people kept comparing them in the actual year as opposed to the length of time they'd been available. Showing how many 360s were sold in 2006 compared to PS3s (even though the PS3 only had not even 2 months worth of sales at that point and the 360 had the whole year). Making it seem like the PS3 had a poor launch, when in fact it sold more thank the 360s launch.
