I don't see how the others are selling that many, unless of course they're channel stuffing, and counting "units sold to retail".

1. The most important thing is PS3 is up YOY unlike the other two consoles without a big exclusive.
2. I'm sure England and Japan will soften the blow. It would be interesting to see what 360's sales would have been without the Halo 4 and COD boosts.

There are a lot more bundeles than that, many of the major stores have their own exclusive Holiday bundle. But they all are 250GB.

The AC3 500GB bundle is a great buy, since the 500GB system by itself would likely cost $300. All the other bundles you are paying for the games to some extent. 

 

One reason I don't think that the PS3 and X360 sales numbers were very close, is because Sony didn't supply stores with a huge supply of the $200 version. I know my local Walmart had about 20 of the $200 PS3, but at least 100 of the X360s that sold from $140-$250...

With the $200 PS3 BF bundles sold out. Sony only has the $270 Uncharted 3 bundle, and the various $300 bundles available for sale. In comparison, Microsoft is selling 2 different $250 bundles. So based solely on price, I think the X360 is going to increase its lead.

I cant believe any of them are doing that good.  All these systems are older, i figured everyone had one by now.  Even though i dont think none of them need to make a new one.  These graphics on either or are good enough, I can see why nintendo would have to though.

If anyone needs help, with something they are going thru? Im here to talk, I suffered severe SAD, severe Anxiety and severe Depression, luekemia, blood clots, foot ulcers from bad circulation, insomnia, amongst alot of other things. I thought I was gay, murderer, childmolester, transgender even thought I was the bad guy himself. Not judging any but knew I wasnt any them before and dont want to be. Just let me know, some i believe are severly wrong and will get you threw in jail as should, if you act on them. Im getting better. This wasnt sweet lies, like hey that hot woman likes you. Like they used to be. These was bad lies considering I wasnt none them before and dont want to be.
