Right from the beginning, Microsoft’s Xbox 360 had a leg up on the Sony PS3, as far as global sales numbers are concerned. And now the tables have turned after many years.
A new forecast by Games Industry International claims that the Sony PS3 has finally overtaken the Xbox 360, taking the lead in units shipped at long last. I know that Sony is loving this. According to Games Industry International, a “market analysis” document by Lewis Ward of IDC (the International Data Corporation) called the Worldwide Video Game Entertainment Console Hardware and Packaged Software 2012-2016 Forecast shows a prediction of hardware as well as software sales over the coming years.
In December 2012, “Sony’s PS3 managed to surpass the number of Xbox 360s shipped worldwide (about 77 million vs. 76 million), despite the PS3 launching a year later.” So Microsoft is not so dominant after all. The PS3 has had many stand out titles and they just keep coming.
