DFC Intelligence: PS3 expected to overtake the Xbox 360 in 2011

November 24, 2010 -

According to projections from DFC Intelligence, the PlayStation 3 will surpass the Xbox 360 in worldwide units sold by "within the next year." Currently, the Xbox 360 has 45.2 million units sold worldwide to date, with the number rising during the holiday season thanks to the release of Kinect and general holiday 2010 sales. Microsoft is expected to sell 5 million Kinect units in total this holiday season, some of which will be sold as part of a system bundle.

The PlayStation 3 has sold 41.2 million units worldwide to date. DFC Intelligence predicts that the PS3 will surpass the Xbox 360 in consoles sold worldwide sometime in 2011. DFC is basing this on a number of huge exclusive titles in 2011 such as Killzone 3, LittleBigPlanet 2, and SOCOM 4. The release of Gran Turismo 5 may also prove to be a motivator for some gamers to buy new PS3 systems.

This isn't too surprising, PS3 has been pretty even and slowly catching up with 360 worldwide. It will probably never catch up in the US though. Pwnage of Empires Xbox 360 Indie RTS

Copyright infringement is nothing more than civil disobedience to a bad set of laws. Let's renegotiate them.

MonteThough from a business side, i would agree with the article. While it would be smarter for developers to slow down, you can't expect EA, Activision or ubisoft to do something like that. Nintnedo's gotta get the third party back.02/28/2015 - 4:36pm
MonteThough it does also help that nintendo's more colorful style is a lot less reliant on graphics than more realistic games. Wind Waker is over 10 years old and still looks good for its age.02/28/2015 - 4:33pm
MonteWith the Wii, nintnedo had the right idea. Hold back on shiny graphics and focus on the gameplay experience. Unfortunatly everyone else keeps pushing for newer graphics and it matters less and less each generation. I can barely notice the difference02/28/2015 - 4:29pm
MonteON third party developers; i kinda think they should slow down to nintendo's pace. They bemoan the rising costs of AAA gaming, but then constantly push for the best graphics which is makes up a lot of those costs. Be easier to afford if they held back02/28/2015 - 4:27pm
Matthew Wilsonhttp://www.forbes.com/sites/insertcoin/2015/02/28/the-world-is-nintendos-if-only-theyd-take-it/ I think this is a interesting op-ed, but yeah it kind of is stating the obvious.02/28/2015 - 2:52pm
prh99The government probably doesn't need an app, but I was think more along the lines of a company that was going to sell the collected info. “If you're not paying for the product, you are the product” sometimes even if you pay.02/28/2015 - 1:50pm
E. Zachary KnightWhat better way for the government to keep track of you than to get you to install an app that lets you insult the government.02/28/2015 - 11:03am
prh99No, but I looked it up and it's basically spyware. Their privacy policy says their apps tracks among other things your location and browsing habits via cookies.02/28/2015 - 8:20am
Ryan RardinHas anyone here heard of an app called iCitizen? It's basically Yelp for politicians.02/28/2015 - 5:16am
