Not much has changed since last week, the Wii is still ahead by miles while the PS3 seems to have solidified its second spot with the 360 bringing up the rear. Microsoft really do need to make a big announcement to turn the tide of Europe before they lose it completely.

Hardware
Wii  – 108,943
PS3 –   76,306
360 –   45,415

Software
Wii  – 481,546
PS3 – 337,345
360 – 284,710

On a side note I have noticed that people in South Africa seem to be becoming more interested in the Wii recently. There was the obvious excitement when it was released, then it died down a bit and now recently I am getting more and more enquiries about it. Obviously this is not some scientific survey but don’t be suprised if you suddenly start to notice a shortage of Wii’s locally.

I for one welcome our future robotic overlords

  • yes Wii wins but just look at how once again the PS3 is knocking the 360

  • RivaZA

    I see that, but I ask myself what the hell is wrong with the Europeans. How could anyone choose a PS3 over a 360? It’s insanity!

  • @ RivaZA I forgive you, you know not what u do

  • Milesh Bhana ZA

    I’m quite surprised at the sales figures for the software. Any big titles to boost the PS3/Wii software sales ?

    Ok, so for Wii, Smash Bros Brawl came out. PS3 ?

  • Fox1

    The PS3 has a tendency to do well when nothing is released or when features are removed 😉

    On a serious note. I believe that the PS3 has a good bundle and a sweet price point. Also 360’s are in short supply.

    @RivaZA- Ever watched European soccer? Sony don’t buy a huge number of advertising boards around the soccer field for nothing. If it’s not Bravia, then its PS3 or VAIO.

  • JimBob

    DMC4 and Burnout Paradise are still selling well on the PS3 – Turok (for a crappy game) also seems to be selling well.

  • ocelot

    Don’t forget Uncharted.

  • doobiwan

    Europe is going to be tough for MS. They’re going to have to do more than just more of the same if they want to take the fight to Sony.

  • Abe

    Lazy you say there has been an increase in wii enquiries, that may be so but have you noticed that I aint the lone gunman anymore? More and more sony boys seem to be showing up!

  • Milesh Bhana ZA

    “More and more sony boys seem to be showing up!”

    Yep, there second jobs finally paid off 😛

    “DMC4 and Burnout Paradise are still selling well on the PS3 – Turok (for a crappy game) also seems to be selling well.”

    Riiight i keep forgetting about the multiplatform stuff. That makes sense.

  • Fred

    So what is happening to the 360 , most muliplatform titles seem to be doing better on the ps3 at the moment. Not just a fancy blu-ray player anymore !!

  • Fox1

    I wonder if those figures include the number of PS3’s that Sony had to replace due to the Blue-Ray Drives diodes failing because its strange for it to sell such a high number of consoles.

    Head over to the local PS3 forum and you will find that the 80gig and 60gig models are failing and although it’s under warranty, it’s being replaced by a refurbished one.

    I hope that made your birthday month Doobiwan 😉

  • ocelot

    Cant be more than the 30%+ of RRoDs

  • doobiwan

    😉

    PS3 is selling slightly better to on par with 360 only in Europe. In the US software wise, 360 is outselling PS3 2-3 to 1.

    “There are no Playstation 3 tanks anywhere near Seattle.”

    “Head over to the local PS3 forum and you will find that the 80gig and 60gig models are failing and although it’s under warranty, it’s being replaced by a refurbished one.”

    lol way to prove you know what you are talking about!

  • Fox1

    Hey Abe. I think it’s the second time i visited the PS3 forum. It seems to be growing well. I remember the first time it was at 60 members.

    Anyway I’m really angry about the quality of the next gen consoles. All 3 have had problems. I hope Sony extends the warranty on new PS3’s or advice to other consumers would be to buy an extended warranty from the retailer.
