...Microsoft.

Nintendo place and Sony show. It'll be interesting to see if this order changes in the months to come...


LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Nintendo Co. Ltd. (7974.OS) sold 604,200 of its new Wii video game consoles in the United States in December, beating Sony Corp., which sold 490,700 units of its new PlayStation 3, according to retail market research firm NPD.

Microsoft Corp. sold 1.1 million Xbox 360 video game consoles to consumers in December. Microsoft's console debuted in November 2005, a full year ahead of the Wii and PS3, which were in short supply during the holidays, when the U.S. video game industry rings up about half of its annual sales.

Sadly, this is true.

The 360 has come a long way since it's launch, and seems to have a lot more big titles on the way. Hopefully, the PS3 can do the same.

I bet they dont take into account returns, because my best buy had about 40 PS3 just sitting there. Funny how there is only about 1700 PS3 console for sale on Ebay when 3 weeks ago it was at 15000.

The PS3 hasn't been launched in Europe yet (will be in March) and it outsold Microsoft's launch yet they had a worldwide launch.

It is true though. The ps3 just hit 1 mill couple weeks ago and in the same time span the 360 sold 600k. I'm still debating which to get because RB6 and GRAW come out for the ps3 in March and those are the only games I really feel like playing right now. Then again the 360 focuses more on shooter games and I'm into those more then RPGs nowadays.

Okay now I understand you. I thought you were trying to say that it outsold the 360 THIS December.
