IGN. The biggest gaming site on the planet has just confirmed that the PS3 did infact outsell the xbox360 worldwide. This is FACT.

For you delusional lemmings out there that still spew the myth that 360 won, you are wrong. You need to accept the facts that PS3 won between those 2.

Xbox has always been in distant 2nd(Xbox/Xbone) or Dead Last 3rd Place(Xbox360).

If the largest gaming site on the planet who has better access to game companies and hardware numbers is not enough to convince you, then you are hopelessly delusional. Seek help.

Wow. It's hard to remember when an Xbox console [360] saw those kinds of numbers. Can they do it again without having to throw away billions just to try and get them in homes by constant price cuts?

@meticuloussam1: I'm going to steal your design and sell the same shirt for $19.99.

PLEASE, nobody buy T-shirts from this overpriced fraud. Only buy authentic Yaya's brand T-shirts for a much better price!

Help me bring shame to this man and his family!

Also, flagged.

LIQUIDATION SALE EDIT: Folks, I'm going to be honest. I have crates of these shirts and I just can't move 'em. So I tell you what, just name your price and you get the whole lot!!!

That's Right! You can use them for shop rags or to clean your car or something. I just can't do anything with them and when I show people the design they become nauseous or violent, usually violently nauseous. Anyway, please...I'm begging you...take these off my hands, huh? I'll pay for shipping. I offered them to the shelter and a bum yelled at me and I got bum juice in my eye. Help me.

Couple points,

1. Still an estimate no new information provided.

2. Even if the PS3 did sell more eventually it was at a point when the race was essentially over.

Sony switched strategy for PS4 and look where it landed them, if the PS3 had been a resounding success why would they have changed strat? case in point MS did enjoy success with the 360 and rested on their laurels and look where it landed them.

@ajstyles: "Please read this article. I haven't, but I'm putting my cred on the line that ign state unequivocally that ps3 sold more than 360. No estimates, just firm figures"

IGN; "(There's some debate as to whether the Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3 ultimately sold more units. With such a tight race and lack of official data, it's difficult to come to a clear conclusion. Continue to the PS3 section to see how we came to ours.)"

AJ; "Wait, wait....I can spin this, and shift some goalposts, as soon as I scrape this runny egg off my face."

Oh lordy....Cows. The gift that keeps on giving.

Their assumption isn't based on air Einstein. After their calculations they came to the conclusion PS3 outsold 360.

The PS3 lost to the Wii by over 14 million units... Why are we supposed to celebrate 2nd place?

By the time the PS3 outsold the 360 the damage had been done...360 had gain a large following and established itself as the popular console that gen. No I’m not counting the fucking Wii.

That said I’m not quite sure if the rumor is true that the 360 sales were inflated by the rebuying of consoles on mass scale due to the huge RRoD problem. At the time 360’s were 52% failure rate.

That can lead to some huge rebuying numbers.

Wow 3 million more!

Was this really thread worthy. And let's not rose tint it. It was by far the hardest gen of Sony's life. They pretty much came out of it looking like a battered terminator.

They were caught completely by surprise with the support Xbox got from gamers and publishers. On top of that, their console was expensive and the Cell was complicated, dramatically slowing development. PS online started off really basic.

Honestly, apart from rrod, I think MS were happier with their position.

Just saying, this isn't one to celebrate.

This is not news. Everyone who plays games should already know the PS3 out sold the X360 historically. Xbox has always finished behind PlayStation in every generation.

@general_solo76: Because selling 82 million consoles means you should hang it up, but possibly selling an estimated 85m through slashing prices from 600 to 200 means "yay" in the cow field?

This is true, the Wii & DS definitely owned Gen 7, The numbers are only important for gaming history.

Gen 4 SNES > Genesis

Gen 5 PS1 > N64 > Saturn

Gen 6 PS2 > Xbox >GC > Dreamcast

Gen 7 Wii > PS3 > X360

Gen 8 PS4 > Switch\Wii U > XBone

It'll be interesting to see how this holds for next gen.
