Sony Computer Entertainment America has issued a statement declaring that Microsoft’s recent claims that it’s Xbox 360 console outsold the PS3 by 2:1 in North America last week are “way off”.

Microsoft announced earlier this week that it’s next-generation videogames console had sold a total of 310,000 units during the Black Friday week, which according to the company, had cemented a 2:1 lead over what Sony’s machine had accomplished during the same period.

However, speaking in an official statement today, the company told the Seattle Post-Intelligencer, "It's (Sony Computer Entertainment America) policy not to disclose our unit sales numbers until NPD numbers are officially released which will be December 13th.”

“However, I can assure you that Microsoft's estimates of our PS3 unit sales numbers are way off and they did not outsell PS3 2:1 during Black Friday week.”

Nintendo is believed to have secured overall console supremacy last week, however, with sales of the Wii reaching 350,000 units.
