We thought we would take a look at the most recent Xbox 360 and Sony PS3 hardware sales. Weekly sales of the Xbox 360 are now up 91 percent to 163,907 — this has a lot to do with the new model. Sony PlayStation 3 sales are 119,466, which is down by 3 percent.
According to VGChartz, total sales now stand at 40,391,841 for the Xbox 360 and 35,483,791 for the PS3. But do let these figures confuse you into how good the PS3 still is. Tech Spotlight has been looking at 5 reasons to own a PS3 this year.
All five of these are because new games that are coming to the console, the most anticipated being Gran Turismo 5. We have been waiting for this driving sim since the console was released and it now looks like 2010 will be the year.
The next game is LittleBigPlanet 2, when I first saw the original game at a tech event I thought that the game was a little childish — after spending many hours playing it with my cousin, I cannot wait for the second version.
The three other titles that will help PS3 sales include: InFamous 2, Killzone 3 and finally The Last Guardian. For more details on all five games visit the link the link above.
