    PS4 became a marginal success in the end but Sony loss a huge chuck of its market share. The real problem with Sony is the lack of 3rd party sales compared to the XBox 360 and XBL takes in more revenue than PSN. Sony biggest reward with the PS3 has been Blu Ray, which kicks ass at the end of the day.

    To be fair, PSN is free compared to XBL's $60/yr fee. I don't understand why people flock to XBL when there is a free alternative. This is primarily why I prefer PS3 over 360.

    The Wii has been the biggest seller, the others are starting to catch up but I think the major problem was their arrogance. They released a console that was expensive in boom time, when people felt like they had plenty of money and it was still too expensive for most then recession came and they boasted about being recession proof and didn't lower the price much if at all.

    Looks like there's very little in it worldwide.

    ^ Yeah but the PS3 came on the market a year after the 360.

    Yes but both consoles are several years old, so most people who want one will own it already.

    The Wii is still selling, both the xbox and PS3 are still selling that's without the inevitable price drops.

    True, but some of those sales might be to replace broken consoles.

    Well that's true, but I know people with multiple xboxes, One in the living room, ones for the kids, one in the bedroom/games room, etc. I'm sure there are people out there doing the same with PS3s.

    Hm, people replacing their XBox360 because of the dreaded RROD might inflate the numbers a little bit...

    There are 2 Xboxes, 2 PS3s and 2 Vitas in my home. Big family. My kids tend to fight over the PS3 more.

    Which means you can have the 360 to yourself. ;)
