Xbox 360 is the first console to beat the PS2

1 min read


The battle we didn’t know was happening is finally over, that’s right the Xbox 360 has finally beaten the PS2.

What didn’t you know we were comparing the two? Well neither did I.

Apparently Nielsen in the States have been comparing the amount of time people play consoles since April 2007 and since that time the PS2 has always been the top console… up until May 2009 that is when the Xbox 360 overtook it by a whole minute.

If you were wondering where the rest of them stood then this is the place to be.

Over the past 6 months the standings have been as follows

  1. PS2 – 22  Minutes %
  2. Xbox 360 – 22 Minutes %
  3. Wii – 18 M%
  4. PS3 – 10 M%
  5. Xbox – 6 M%
  6. GameCube – 3 M%

Now the only thing I still don’t understand is what exactly the minute percentage is?
