Consoles on the road to success

In our current voting, approx. 73% are against game consoles, but this result should not be overestimated on a PC hardware software side. Because both Microsoft and Sony are currently extremely pleased with their sales figures.

This is how the Xbox has been since US market launch on November 15th, sold over 1.5 million times and thus achieved the set target. And game sales are also slowly taking off. According to a study by the NPD Group , the average Xbox customer has bought three game titles. Sony is still more than pleased with the sales figures for the Playstation 2. Worldwide, five million devices went over the counter in the Christmas business alone. In the US alone, 640,000 of the 2.5 million 'Christmas PS2s' are said to have been sold in the last week before Christmas Eve. But sales of PS2 consoles in Germany were also at a record high with 1.7 million copies in December. The mainstay of the Playstation 2 continues to be the wide range of game support. While 1500 game titles are available for Sony consoles in Europe and 4200 in Japan, Microsoft customers are currently only allowed to choose from 30 games.
