The Xbox 360 saw a recent sales spike of 40% in the United Kingdom, after a pan-Europe price slash. Dorian Bloch, a games industry expert said, "The real litmus test will be over the next three to four weeks – it's too early to read too much into it at this stage."
While clearly no winner can be declared in the European front of the console wars, all of the players seem to be doing well. The PS3 is jazzed about a hardware bundle they're offering in conjunction with the exclusive release of Gran Turismo 5 Prologue, which should boost sales, and the Wii/DS continue to top software sales charts with Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games. Meanwhile, the PS2 continues to surprise analysts doing well in console and software sales which speaks to Sony's console longevity.
Not to start a flame war or anything but which of these consoles is your favorite and why? Ha, c'mon take the bait. It's so shiny.
