So what is this the third or fourth week in a row that the PS3 has beaten the Xbox 360 in Europe?
This sales spike seems to be lasting a decent amount of time and now with the run in to Christmas just around the corner Sony actually has a chance of keeping it’s lead.
It’s not a very big lead though,
Wii – 95,678
PS3 – 54,599
360 – 46,984
When you delve into the numbers even more you notice that Sony only managed to take Europe this week because of two countries in particular..
In Spain and Italy the PS3 outsold the 360 by a combined 11,500 units. Seeing that they only beat the 360 by 8000 units in total you can see how important those two countries were to Sony this week.
However a win is a win and as long as the COD4 delay doesn’t affect the PS3 to badly in the next two weeks I could see them holding out for a Christmas win.
Another interesting thing to notice is that under the Other section the 360 actually outsold the PS3. The Other section includes us 😉
