PS3 Leading Europe In Sales This Year

PS3 Leading Europe In Sales This Year

In Europe, PS3 is leading the console wars this year, according to notes released in a Nintendo’s investor conference last night.

According to Nintendo’s internal numbers, PS3 has sold between 50,000 and 100,000 units per week in Europe for 2012, 3DS between 30,000 and 50,000 units per week, followed by Xbox 360 in third place.

“Looking at the cumulative sales transition from the beginning of the year, the sales of PS3 are exceeding those of last year,” Nintendo’s president Satoru Iwata observed. “But Wii’s sales showed a year-on-year loss.

“Xbox 360 is selling well in the US, but the transition is nearly the same as last year in Europe.”

Nintendo’s data was gathered from “independent market research companies in European countries”.
