    360 closing in on wii as the best selling console of this gen in the UK..

    not just in the US does the 360 stand the chance of becoming the biggest selling console this gen, you can most likely add the UK to that.

    Lifetime Xbox 360 sales look certain to overtake those of current-gen leader Nintendo Wii in the UK.
    Microsoft's console was less than 200,000 sales behind Wii at the end of December, having sold over four times more units than Wii in 2012, according to data supplied to CVG by GFK Chart-Track.

    while in the US, industry research firm DFC Intelligence predicts Xbox 360 will also overtake Wii to become the region's best selling system for its generation.
    Unlike Nintendo, Microsoft has seen its console peak during the later years of its life-cycle, the firm wrote in an analyst note this month.
    "The success of Microsoft and the Xbox 360 during the past two years highlights a radical changing of the guard in the game industry.
    "Much has been made about a steady video game sales decline in the past three years. In reality the decline has mainly been due to the aging console systems and more importantly because of Nintendo's collapse."

    I agree, MS have really done well this gen. Let us hope it will continue next gen for both MS, Sony and nintendo so it won´t be the last gen of consoles.

    I said they would, both HD consoles are eating into the Wiis lead, all 3 should eventually hit the 100m mark.

    The 360 has always done well in Europe and the US though, so this isn't a surprise to see them doing that good in the UK specifically.
