Game Consoles Wars

Throughout the holiday quarter, Sony Computer Entertainment managed to sell an estimated 4.9 million PlayStation 3 console worldwide. Despite strong sales of the company’s latest console, Sony cut its sales PS3 target for fiscal year from 11 million to 9.5 million units.

Microsoft was able to sell 4.3 million Xbox 360 units during the fourth calendar quarter 2007 (fiscal Q2 2008). The number is slightly down from 4.4 million units the company sold during the Christmas season of 2007. Unit sales for the first six months of Microsoft’s fiscal year 2008 came in at 6.1 million, up from 5.4 million in H1 FY2007.

Nintendo employees will be throwing down tonight and waking up the next morning hungover, after receiving the news that they have sold 7.09 million units worldwide, and are hot on Bill Gates tail as they close in on the Xbox 360.

So 4.9milion PS3, 4.3 million XBOX 360 , and  7,09milion Wii .

If this trend continues, I see very good times for PS3, who managed to rise from small sales in 2006-2007.
