Fire up the torch, it's time for some more data to be picked apart and combed through regarding console sales;
PS3 sales numbers outshine the 360 when you compare each console's first 14 months on the market. Apparently, according to a sales tracker called VG Chartz, the PS3 sold 10 million units in its first 14 months while it took the 360 an extra 4 months to get there. The figure was corroborated by the Associated Press and is a cumulative global total.
