Xbox 360 outselling PS3 by 10 million in US, not so much in Europe

Posted By | On 31st, Mar. 2011

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.

Of course, the DS and the Wii are in the first two positions respectively. The numbers are given below:

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. The DS remains in the first position, as expected.

DS – 46 million units
Wii – 24.9 million units
PSP – 14.8 million units
PS3 – 14.7 million units
Xbox 360 – 13.7 million units
