    That 32 month streak is phenomenal though. did the PS2 ever do that? never kept track of stuff back then.

    to be fair though, pretty much all consoles are going down in sales due to the next-gen around the corner. just that PS3 would naturally get a bump because there's more saturation with the 360 market.

    Yeah, it was over 32-months easily. PS2 dominated from the start to finish pretty much not even a road bump if you compare the sales it's ridiculous. I give props to the 360 though, it's still impressive.

    I did. People are catching up on Playstation franchises in preparation for the exodus to PS4.. Even in the Xboxes own front yard.

    GTA V was just the excuse to splash on a new system, as sales figures indicate that it was the bundle that really pushed sales (indicating, this is an influx of new owners rather than re-buys).

    Yup. People will be waiting on the fence to get a PS4 if there's not enough to supply the shelves. Oh well.

    I thought that the Ps3 outsold Xbox like a few years ago... either i'm losing my mind or the internetz lied to me!!! we ll that's great news and since games are still coming out for PS3 and Xbox 360, i hope the trend continues until devs stop supporting the current systems

    you may be confusing overall sales. 360 has been outselling the PS3 in the US for a while now. this is pretty much where 360 kept their lead. i think it's easy for the PS3 to get ahead much further now because it is not saturated yet and probably can sell at a higher price than the 360.

    once $360 ends up being like $99 then we'll see a big bump in sales for it. until then, i think PS3 will probably keep it close, if not more.

    Yea I think I was getting overall sales confused with US sales. Thanks for clearing that up. Is it me or will current gen consoles become almost irrelevant once the next gen consoles are released? I mean sure the devs and respective companies will support it (current gen) but I think that next gen will be something that everyone will try their hardest to obtain. Since next gen consoles arent backwards compatible then i feel like current gen will be pushed almost into oblivion... just a thought

    They still sell decent. Especially when they drop the price of them. Nothing like they normally do but it takes a couple years until they become completely irrelevant.

    It was apparently the GTA IV bundle that pushed them into 1st place.

    TLOU made it to number one in June NPD software. http://www.gameinformer.com/b/news/a...ng-titles.aspx. But yeah the GTA bundle pushed PS3 to the top in the hardware numbers for Sept.

    Yeah but they go hand in hand. People sitting on the fence hear about these critically acclaimed games could receive that last push by those games to buy a PS3. The systems don't sell themselves without games.

    Not really, i think mc just proved that despite TLOU doing really well, it didn't exactly make the console number one in July.
    This late in to the gen only a solid bundle can really be attributed to a game shifting a console. Too many people who want these games already own the console.
