In a recent report by VG247, number crunches show that in the last 12 months ending June 30th, the PlayStation 3 outsold the Xbox 360 by 4 million units.
The specifics show that Microsoft’s golden child pushed 10.3 million consoles in the last financial year, while Sony’s pulled a solid 14.3 million in the same timeframe. And while PS3 may have won the battle, it’s not winning the war, as total sales show that PS3 has sold 38.1 million in its running time with the Xbox leading by 3.6 million at 41.7 million.
Despite the recent slowdown in 360 sales, take note that the Xbox 360 S has recently been released and the benefits already seem to be showing for Microsoft.
At the same time, both PlayStation Move and Kinect are going to be raising their heads soon, which will no doubt play a key role in the battle for second place (the Wii still being in first).
