reigning king of the console market? That would be the Wii unless you want to go all time and I guess that would be the Playstation 2 or possible the DS is we are counting hand helds ;)
Xbox 360 is simply the older console, that now has to deal with market satration, the 720 about to make its debut, and the natural decline every console goes through and given it's eight years old that's retirement age for a console so was inevitable the PS3 which is at the height of its popularity would over take the 360 but the 360 still gets good games and good services, same with the PS3
I agree with Araknie. This is definitely "over shipping" but 2013 should be an interesting year for both Microsoft and Sony. Mainly because they will be trying to each milk the omega sales of the current gen systems before the next ones are released.
Sony is always over shipping their consoles. How many PSX did you see after the PS2 was released, how many PS2 when the PS3 was out in stores? Exactly, a lot.
I figured one of the editors would say it. Wii is the king of sales and thank you McShea for the no mean comments reminder. People are so mean.
