Statistics published by top game developer Tose show that with 42 million the total number of PS3s sold globally have exceeded the Xbox 360 by a million units.

The statistics coe by way of a presentation by Tose (a prolific Kyoto-based game developer best known for not being known, as their games as usually credited exclusively to the company outsourcing the work to them, most often Nintendo) at the Kyoto Cross Media Experience 2010 [LINK REMOVED]

vgchartz will always have the xbox360 as the leading console no matter what.

 

Why We Don’t Reference VGChartz

 

Why VGChartz isn't considered reliable

Awesome news if true.

 

I might go and 'knock one out' over my PS3 now to celebrate.

 

Seriously though, why care?

I thought it was only 400,000 ahead seeing as MS tried to bend the truth on the stats, everyone thinks it 4 mill ahead. Sony published the amount that actually sold while MS published the amount the factory has made, not to mention that every time they fix someones 360 and send it back they probably count it as a sale anyway :P

Its also known that Sony and Nintendo do the same thing when it comes to sale reports.

 

Like other people say who cares.

While I don't know about these numbers, the 360 isn't ahead of the PS3 by 4 million units anymore.

Official figures from Sony's and Microsoft's financial results state there is a 2.9m difference, down from 3.6m the quarter before. These financial results came out a few weeks ago. I'll just continue to believe them, instead.

Fianical results are the only thing you can really go by tbh, and by them the 360 is still in the lead.

 

The latest numbers (based upon sales totals up until 30th September 2010) shows that now only five million consoles set the PS3 and 360 apart with there being 39.2 million PlayStation 3's in the world against 44.6 million Xbox 360's having been sold.

 

Sony is however selling the PS3 at a faster rate, 3.5 million PS3's in the same time it took for Microsoft to ship 2.8 million Xbox 360's.

Major Nelson had said there were 42m Xboxs sold, with 44.6m shipped (Financial figures). Sony's figures stating that there are 41.6m PS3s shipped.

 

http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showthread.php?t=411550

 

What he seems to be doing, is as financial results come, he has been keeping his charts. I've gone through and quickly looked at FY results for the PS3 back since its launch and the 41.6m seems accurate.

 

I know people like to shout "Well, how many of that is shipped and not sold?" - or "How many have broken and been replaced?" - that doesn't matter, first, these companies only supply for the demand, those consoles will get sold.  

 

Secondly, while it is silly to think there have been masses of people replacing broken consoles, especially with Microsoft's warranty scheme, it is the only way to gauge popularity and in the end, that is all that matters to investors, publishers and developers. 

 

It is quite interesting to see the PlayStation 3 sell more than any other console, worldwide in July - September.
