For the last half a decade the console wars haven’t really budged. The Wii has remained on top, the 360 stayed in second place, and the PS3 in third. Over the years though, the PlayStation 3 started closing the gap between itself and the 360. According to Strategy Analytics, as of the end of 2010 the PlayStation 3 is now officially number two in the world, beating the 360 out with 43.4 million units, compared to the 360’s 42.9 million units. Nintendo still leads with a whopping 75.5 million units sold.
The PlayStation 3 does have advantage though. Microsoft’s consoles have never been popular in the Asian regions, the 360 is no exception. While the market isn’t as large as North America and Europe, it still has given Sony a boost. Strategy Analytics expects the PlayStation 3 to remain in the number two spot throughout 2011.
Look at how happy the PS3 is with his little flag. Victory for it.
