    PlayStation 3 is the best worldwide selling console of 2011

    Nintendo has released some very interesting information in its Semi-Annual Financial Results Briefing regarding Worldwide software and hardware sales for all three consoles.

    According to the estimated figures released by Nintendo, Sony’s PlayStation 3 is the top selling console in the World, with NeoGaf translating the figures on the graphs provided as follows:

    (Estimated figures)

    2011 YTD HARDWARE SALES

    TOTAL US EU JP PS3 6.3 2.42 2.79 1.11 NDS 5.5 2.67 2.26 0.60 360 5.5 3.45 1.98 0.09 3DS 5.0 1.42 1.48 2.15 WII 4.9 2.36 2.01 0.55 PSP 3.9 0.85 1.40 1.60

    - US: NPD, Jan to Sep. - JP: Media Create, Week 1 to Week 42. - EU: Nintendo, Week 1 to Week 41. Interestingly this puts PS3 at almost 1 million units ahead of the Xbox 360, which would seem accurate considering that PS3 consistently outsells the Xbox 360 in both Europe and Japan, while the Xbox 360 generally outperforms PS3 in both the U.S and UK.

    On the software side there is some very interesting information; for instance in Europe, Killzone 3 on the PlayStation 3 has outsold the Xbox 360 version of Rockstar’s L.A Noire. While the PS3 version of FIFA 12 is clearly the most popular, going as far as topping the European charts for the period of January –September. Interestingly even Call of Duty Black Ops is performing better on PS3, which is something which we would not have expected.

    PS3 franchises such as Gran Turismo 5 and Killzone 3 seems to be performing well, while Epic’s Gears of War 3 also seems to have got off to a strong start.

    Software for Wii and DS is still going strong in Europe, with eight titles being represented in the top ten.

    Looking at just the consoles sold for 2011(not life to date figures), EU is the reason behind the ps3 pushing ahead of the 360 for the year 2011(hopefully people will see I'm talking about 2011 and not LTD figures).

    Awesome achievement but sales are more or less irrelevant these days. Who gives a $#@! about sales really, when there are so many badass games to play.

    Because hopefully some more people will play the more niche games online which are near dead.

    Worthy of it's own thread.

    PS3 fights off the competition for another year. Pretty easy to see why with all the games and collectors editions we received.

    I must say, i owned an xbox since launch(3 to be exact do to rrod) and had fun with it. Nov.2010 a friend turned me onto the PS3 with GoW3 and Heavy Rain. Ive never looked back! My live sub ran out months ago and i could care less. I love ps store for all their freebies and discounts for being a plus member. I never got 1 thing free on 4yrs of live. I love the fact it can be an all in 1 media station. I love collecting games for it from launch titles to current. And i cannot wait for my UC3 collectors edition. In my eyes Sony is doing almost everything right and rather than being nickle & dimed by MS im a full supporter of the PS3 now!!

    It's safe to say 90% of the Wii's user base don't visit video game forums. Thus we can exclude them from any conversation at will

    Wasn't the PS3, since it released, the best selling HD console ? no surprises here... People always made it like the 360 was the best selling when in fact they looked at usa = world, wich is far from the truth.

    I don't understand why so many people are buying a console that has no games.

    (yes, I'm being sarcastic).

    SONY has enough studios to support the PS3 even after the PS4 and Vita have launched. Helps when your probably the biggest sole entity in gaming. ^_^
    I can see the PS3 selling systems longer after the 360.
