European Sales Figures – 29th March 2008

1 min read

The latest European sales figures are in. The Xbox 360 price cut has had all the time it needed to take effect and we had GT5 Prologue released.

So lets start with the software sales figures.

1. Gran Turismo Prologue (PS3) 374,607
2. Rainbow 6 Vegas 2 (360) 111,569
3. Wii Sports (Wii) 110,420

The next PS3 title is Rainbow 6 coming in 7th with sales of 50,698 and the next 360 title is way down in 17th spot. Viking: Battle for Asgard battled it’s way to 32,681 hits.

All the spots in the middle are taken up by DS and Wii titles and two PSP titles.

As for hardware

PS3 – 128,813
Wii  – 110,421
360 –  77,594

So the PS3 outsold the Wii thanks in large to Gran Turismo, however what is worrying is that the weekly sales for the 360 dropped by 18%. I really thought this price cut would have put a fire into the 360 sales but it doesn’t look like the Europeans are going to take it.

    Dunno if you can believe anything you read online today . Went to compare last weeks figures with this week and according to that the xbox did 116k last week vs PS3 94k ????

    Even if the PS3 is outselling now, it will take a long time for them to catch up unless they start outselling by a 250% margin.

  • pete

    umm the 360 sold 128k, the ps3 was the 77k on VGChartz…
