    A friend of mine was wondering about how the sales of PS3 consoles compared to those of Xbox 360 in Europe?  I figured I could ask a question like this here, since most Souls' forum users play nice with others of the opposite console.

    30 million PS3 sales as of last December in Europe.

    The 360 total is not know but is generally thought to be less. Also of interesting note is that the PS3 sales in Europe are similar to the sales in America (around 30 million.)(Even though the console is more expensive here in Europe than it is in America)

    In a nutshell the European market is and has been historically important for Sony in terms of PlayStation sales each console generation.
