When it comes down to video game consoles the Xbox 360 and the PlayStation 3 are two of the most popular video game consoles of the mid to late 00’s and the early 10’s. In terms of which game console is popular really depends on who you ask. But in terms of which game console sole more there are many people who would give the slight edge to the Xbox 360. The Xbox 360 had reportedly sold over 84 million units would wide while the PS3 had managed to do over 83 million. Despite, the standard 20 GB version of the PS3 game averaging around $499 this console had still managed to impress in terms of sales within eight years before the release of the PlayStation 4 in 2013.
If the standard 20 GB version of the PlayStation 3 was $100 cheaper following its release back in 2006 then the game console could have possibly surpassed the Xbox 360. In terms of which game console had better visuals is debatable there are many who probably give the Xbox 360 the slight edge over the PlayStation 3 in relation overall success regarding sales.
