claims Microsoft looks set to win the Christmas console battle

Xbox 360 outstripping PS3 sales

Discount shopping network reckons that data obtained from the browsing habits of its 9m monthly users suggest that Xbox 360 is on track to outsell Sony’s rival PS3 console by a ratio of 3-to-1 this Christmas in the UK.

Microsoft’s console has gradually increased its slice of purchases made throughout the site in recent months. In August of this year it claimed 53 per cent of the Xbox 360 and PS3’s total sales. By October this had hit 62 per cent and this month it stands at 74 per cent.

“A couple of months ago, little separated the two in terms of units being sold through our site, but November has seen a huge surge by Microsoft’s budget friendly console, backed by a stellar PR campaign,” ‘retail expert’ Mark Pearson stated, according to MyVoucherCodes.
