posted the numbers of console sales and surprisingly, the PS3 had less than 200,000 units. The Wii’s launch was more than a success, but in a bold move – the 360 sold more than both of them. That’s the benefit of a console that doesn’t have the launch pains – surely PS3 would sell out everywhere if they could just make more of them. Here’s a clip:

On the console side, the data reveals 197,000 PlayStation 3 consoles were sold, which is more than half of the promised 400,000 consoles Sony had plan to ship, which backs the news that Sony only shipped 200,000 consoles at launch. Nintendo more than doubled the PS3 numbers and sold 476,000 Wiis. However Microsoft came out on top selling through 511,000 Xbox 360 consoles.
