For the first time ever, the PS3 is outselling the Xbox 360 for overall sales worldwide! If you recall, at the end of November the sales were equal between the PS3 and Xbox 360. Remember, the PS3 came out a year later than the Xbox 360. What are your thoughts and feelings about this news?

I have to say that is pretty impressive. Not only did it come out a year later, but the 4g xbox sells at 199 (which equals into those sales) and how many special xboxes get released (and I know a lot of people who bought a second system just to have the star wars or halo xbox)

You also have to keep in mind the "red rings" Xbox. So the sells probably attributed to 30 million of them j/k :D

It surely helped, I didn't buy an Xbox because all my friends that have one, had to repaired it at some point. And the 360 is way cheaper in my contry.

I'm fairly shocked to be honest. It seems as though the xbox community outnumbers us on ps3. Does this statistic only include the console or does it also include games? Regardless, I hope Sony doesn't come in a year behind Microsoft again for the new console.

Yeah man, I burned through FOUR 360s while I still have my first ever PS3 for years with no problems so far.

I'd say "finally" , I had an Xbox360 myself and in about 4 month it got the three rings of death, after that I got a ps3 and lasted for 4 years. I really don't care though both consoles are good and have cool exclusives but I think ps3 deserves to outsell xbox since it has FREE INTERNET access to the web and it didn't came out with a 4-6 month of life span, and aslo blu-ray. xD

This is technically incorrect. The PS3 has outdone the 360 in units shipped, not sold. This just means that there are more PS3s available for sale and not necessarily that there are in fact more PS3s being sold.

The PlayStation 3 has been outselling the 360 for a while now. It came out a year later, so in order to make that up it had to have been outselling it, or it would always be behind. What has finally happened is the PlayStation 3 has finally sold more units that the 360 has, which is good news and also a little surprising given the poor start we had.

I'm not really surprised.

Consoles have drop in price so people are starting to buy them more.

Microsoft seems like that are getting lazy and greedy...I may not be correct, but it seems that way. I haven't touched the Xbox, ever. My brother hardly plays it anymore. I guess Playstation is just giving higher quality stuff, and they will for sure blow the Xbox out of the water this half year

Because the PS3 is the superior console


Sorry, but saying that just makes you sound like an elitist douchebag. Neither console is superior, both consoles are great in their own respects and the sooner people realise that the better. The PlayStation may appeal to you more, but that doesn't mean the 360 doesn't appeal to others, it all boils down to personal preference.

Need I remind you that the PS3 has bluray-tech ?

And also not being a fanboy or anything here because each console has their forte,neither Uncharted 2 or 3 are even Possible on the 360 either,when every other game on the 360 has gotten a version on the PS3 and most of the time its superior to the 360 version so indeed it is the superior console.

Also according to wiki

PS3 550 Mhz of graphics,360 500Mhz of graphics.

Even if it's only shipped, you can make a logical conclusion that the PS3 is outselling the 360. Remember, IGN had the article of them at even units sold at the end of November. Since then, if more PS3's are just now being shipped more than the 360, then more PS3s are in demand than Xbox 360 at this point in time. This also means in November that there were more Xbox 360s sitting on the shelf than the PS3 since the units sold were the same. Microsoft hasn't stopped shipping Xbox 360s, Sony has just been shipping PS3s rapidly due to the high demand. Why would they ship more PS3s if they weren't selling? With this in mind, you could come to the logical conclusion that more PS3s have been sold in the past month than Xbox 360.

Does 360 come with rechargeable controller(s)?

Well now you are just debating opinion vs fact.

You might like the 360 better but the PS3 is the better console. It has more exclusives (you know people like playing more than 1 or 2 games a year), free online (unless you like paying 60$ a year), bluray vs dvd (if you like having your game on 2 or 3 discs vs 1 then I guess Xbox would be better), and that is not even getting into the fact that Xbox is just catching up with stuff that has been standard since the beginning (hdmi, built in wifi, wireless controllers etc.)

In the end it comes down to the opinion, but just based on technology and a wider range of options you have to say PS3 is the superior console.
