I'll leave Keith to edit this post to include total numbers! Please keep the link to the old thread though!
Time for something of a 2010 summary now then, eh?
UK Christmas estimates (4 week period leading up to Dec 25th, with 2009's sales in brackets):
Wii - 380,587 (448,304)
Xbox 360 - 363,296 (284,848)
PlayStation 3 - 220,744 (237,551)
Wii did rather better than I thought it would at Christmas, with 360 naturally boosted by Kinect. Strongest Christmas for Microsoft in the UK to date, I believe - not bad for a console in its 6th year. PS3 floundering.
UK total 2010 estimates:
Xbox 360 - 1,456,538 (1,140,765)
Wii - 1,204,374 (1,697,865)
PlayStation 3 - 930,516 (944,585)
Quite a boost for 360, and a fair drop off for Wii. PS3 going nowhere.
North American Christmas estimates (4 week period leading up to Dec 25th, with 2009's sales in brackets):
Wii - 3,415,653 (3,529,214)
Xbox 360 - 2,263,775 (1,441,057)
PlayStation 3 - 1,251,414 (1,331,788)
North American total 2010 estimates:
Wii - 9,282,972 (10,413,851)
Xbox 360 - 7,915,423 (5,416,881)
PlayStation 3 - 5,382,573 (4,820,230)
You have to wonder whether Sony is worried that PS3 is gaining no momentum year to year in the US and UK, or whether it's simply happily with the ground it makes up, on average, in mainland Europe and Japan.
