So Microsoft released a press release earlier this week saying that the Xbox 360 outsold the PS3 by 2:1 over the Black Friday weekend in the US.
Sony however has now responded saying
It’s (Sony Computer Entertainment America) policy not to disclose our unit sales numbers until NPD numbers are officially released which will be December 13th. However, I can assure you that Microsoft’s estimates of our PS3 unit sales numbers are way off and they did not outsell PS3 2:1 during Black Friday week.
So is Microsoft lying or will Sony be caught with their pants down when the official NPD stats are released. One thing for sure is that the statement from Sony cannot be misunderstood and they must be pretty confident to state something so blatantly…
Personally I expect the 360 to have outsold the PS3 by a large margin in the States yet again but for now we will all have to wait.
Yes the Nintendo Wii crushed everyone again with estimated sales of 350 000 for the week… Scary numbers.
