The VGChartz Gap charts are updated monthly and each article focuses on a different gap chart. The charts include comparisons between the 7th generation and 8th generation platforms, as well as comparisons within the 8th generation. All sales are worldwide, unless otherwise stated.

XOne Vs. PS3 US:

Gap change in latest month: 83,252 – PS3

Gap change over last 12 months: 475,757 – PS3

Total Lead: 3,836,107 - XOne

XOne Total Sales: 27,486,776

PS3 Total Sales: 23,650,669

In December 2019 the gap in the US between the Xbox One and PlayStation 3 grew in favor of the PS3 when you align launches. The PS3 sold 83,252 more units than the PS3 in the last month and sold 475,757 more units in the last 12 months.  The Xbox One currently leads by 3.84 million units.

The Xbox One launched in the US on November 22, 2013, while the PlayStation 3 launched on November 17, 2006. The Xbox One has sold 27.49 million units in 73 months, while the PS3 sold 23.65 million units during the same timeframe.

The PS3 sold 26.99 million units lifetime in the US, which means in its 74th month on sale the Xbox One has outsold the lifetime sales of the PS3 in the US.

Well, that's all she wrote. Interesting comparison while it lasted though. Even in its weakened state Xbox did better in the US this gen than Playstation did last gen.

This comparation doesn't make sense, XB1 has already outsold PS3 lifetime (As PS3 sold less than 27m), why keep comparing them?

December is when the Xbox One outsold the PS3. Now that it is ahead I won't be doing this anymore.

Why? We can see the next 2-3 years how PS3 will be closing the difference, even though xbox will win. Just to see how close the chart will come and the drop that it will have. Continue doing it.
