    What about the Japanese & European markets. Yeah right let’s not talk about where XBox 360 is failing miserably.

      Why would they if it is an NPD group statistic? Japan the 360 does not have a presence, but that is a considerably smaller market than the U.S. In European markets I imagine it is still competitive but data isn’t as well collected as it is in Japan and the U.S.

      The Xbox 360 just past the Wii in the UK, and past the PS3 a long time ago for total console sales.
