Can't wait for Shenmue 3



I hate jokes that rely on visual imagery.

I've had it right up to here with them.

The novelty and excitement over the Wii is dwindling, and PS3s are currently VERY hard to find in stores for some reason (at least in the US).

I'm not surprised the 360 is on top right now, but I would also not be surprised if the PS3 takes the top spot by the end of the year if they keep releasing AAA exclusives and sort out their supply issues.

Microsoft has pointed out that Xbox 360 "continues to outsell the PlayStation 3", reports CVG.
THE US NPD results for May saw Xbox 360 shift a further 194,600 consoles in North America.

Microsoft puts the strong sales down to the new Xbox 360 slim while they also noted Xbox 360 "continues to outsell the PlayStation 3 at retail for the fifth consecutive year and every single month of 2010."

800% boost in sales in Japan for the 360, doesn't mean a whole lot though as the 10 year old PS2 still outsells it over there.
