    I bet its due to the recent hack of PS3.
    People bought PS3's to jailbreak lol.

    Nice April fools' joke. This is IMPOSSIBLE.

    EDIT - Quoted from the source:

    "Update 9:01pm: We made a bit of a boo-boo with our original post and title. It seems this article is speaking of the console’s “active user base”. We’ve updated the post and topic to reflect the correct information."

    I bet its due to the PS3 gathering steam.
    People bought PS3's to play games and media.

    How can you be so sure? I know that it was posted on the 31st of March, but that doesn't mean that it isn't an April Fools joke. This should clear some stuff up. I fail to understand how the PS3 sales can suddenly overtake the massive sales of the 360.

    "active user base".

    Not sales. Read it again. The title may be slightly misleading, but sales are never mentioned until the end where the guy is just guessing at future sales.

    wasnt really massive

    last time I checked it was 3.5mil unit difference between the two
    but its very unlikely the PS3 moved that many units in 1 week

    im calling aprils fools

    Considering most of Japan is a PS3 country, it's pretty sad the PS3 hasn't been beating the 360 for a while.

    I really don't care if they sold 1 system, or 5 trillion. The thing that pisses me off the most is this is going to be 98% of Sony's press conference for E3. All they do is talk numbers.

    You know what I use my PS3 for? Heating my room.

    Fact is, eventually, it was bound to pass it up. 360 came out some time before the PS3, and it's just NOW hitting that benchmark? That's fucking sad.

    Every company starts with numbers and then the releases, that's just classic marketing.

    Bullshit. Bull-fucking-shit. Nobody makes as big of a deal about numbers than Sony.

    Sony: "OH, WE BEAT MICROSOFT! WE ARE THE BEST EVUR!!! NO ONE LIKES NINTENDO SHIT SO WE WIN"

    Microsoft: "Who cares about numbers? WE GOTZ CoD AND KINECT"

    Nintendo: *mindless accessories, remakes, ports* "Yeah, we're fucked."
