Microsoft’s Chris Lewis has come out, once again, to claim that Microsoft’s Xbox 360 is ahead of PlayStation3 when it comes to European sales. He spelled it out very clearly. He was extremely matter of fact about it. As far as he is concerned, it’s true. Here’s how he put it.
“If you look right across my area of responsibility, every data point that I’ve got, which I trust – and data points we’ve always used – put us approximately 1 million units ahead in the aggregate.”
Chris is talking about the EMEA region – Europe, the Middle East and Africa. When Sony says it’s ahead, it tends to use global data or PAL territories numbers, which makes a larger footprint and skews the data in its favour. It’s all very technical. And a bit childish.
Especially as Nintendo’s looking down at the pair of them, laughing as they SQUABBLE OVER CRUSTS.
