PS3 Outsells Xbox 360 Worldwide In Total Sales (January 2013)

Xbox 360 vs PS3

Battle of the titans! Who will win it all?

It’s official. The PlayStation 3 has outsold the Xbox 360 in lifetime sales, surpassing it for the first time over this past 2012 holiday season. PS3 @ 77 million woldwide sales, Xbox 360 76 million woldwide sales.

Those are worldwide sales however, and the lead is only slight, whereas the Xbox 360 is largely perceived to have WON the current-generation console war, with a huge sales lead in North America that the PS3 has never been able to catch (of course, the Xbox 360 was released in 2005, getting a year jump start on Sony’s competing console).

Typically the sales leader in North America is considered to be the console to win the war, as the United States is the most important and biggest territory in terms of sales and audience in the Western world. So the console that wins America, is often declared the winner of the war.

This new sales data was revealed in a new report by IDC on the videogame industry (Worldwide Video Game and Entertainment Console Hardware and Packaged Software 2012-2016), as reported by Game Informer.

    The problem here is that the PS3 can’t really sell all that many games like the 360 can. 360 owners buy more games than PS3 owners. They have this entire generation. Move vs. Kinect, Kinect won. 360 vs. PS3 (in total sales), 360 won. PS3 is also more popular in Europe and Japan so eventually they were gonna win. By the way before any fanboy starts to call me a 360 lover, I don’t own a 360 anymore. Sold it cuz it broke 3 years ago. I own a Wii and PS3 and think both consoles are far better than the 360.
