The details about how many systems have been sold in the US have emerged, and the Xbox 360 is beating the PS3 so bad, it’s not even funny. It has a lead of exactly 10 million units over its rival console.

DS – 47.3 million units
Wii – 34.2 million units
Xbox 360 – 25.4 million units
PSP – 19 million units
PS3 – 15.4 million units
GameStop said: “Based on internal company estimates, we believe that the installed base of video game software units in the United States currently exceeds 1.98 billion units.”
In Europe, though, things are a bit more different.
IGD data released by US retailers GameStop says the European gaming market has a console install base of 153 million units. The Wii is the outselling its competitors comfortably, with the PS3 taking second place on the home console front with exactly 1 million units sold more than the Xbox 360.
