Friday, 18th March 2011 14:55 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

Sony has announced that PS3 has surpassed 3 million units sold since its release in March 2007, compared to 2.3 million Xbox 360 units (per GfK).

GfK says software has brought in €418 million, equal to 8 million units sold, compared to €337 million for Wii and €239 million for Xbox 360.

As of Q3 2010, Sony sold 42 million PS3 units worldwide.

Thanks, Gamekyo.

    I notice that in game retailers in Paris, there is usually more space reserved for PS3 games than for 360.

    Who gives a shit?! Nintendo have won this generation of consoles.

    MS and Sony basically got their arse handed to them with inferior hardware and they fucking know it.

    What are you talking about not really. It’s a fact that MS and Sony are last this gen. Wii sales in every continent dwarf the 360′s/PS3′s. Accept it and move on..

    Bond has a point. The Wii may be targeted at a slightly different audience but it’s still in the console audience.

    @lonndubh PS3 box covers are in front of 360 on most multi-platform game adverts as well, right?

    About the story, notice how only 360 and PS3 hardware sales are included.

    Nope. PS3 sells more in most non-English speaking countries which include both Japan and France. 360 tends to sell more in English speaking countries only,like US,UK and Australia.

    well, xbox sells more in the US, the UK and Australia

    and since USA and UK are the largest gaming markets, they are doing something right.
    i bet the xbox would sell alot more here if they would give us some XBL gold features, that US citicens have ^^ we europeans dont have anything….well twitter i guess :S

    @11, Over 48mil (I bet 50mil before the end of next month), #10 is right though, only in the US, the UK and here in Australia (& maybe New Zealand too) has the 360 outsold the PS3.
    I bet by the end of the year the PS3 will have sold more than the 360.
