Xbox Gaining Lots Of Market Share

Major Nelson from Xbox Live has some stats that should make Microsoft very happy. Microsoft has slashed Playstation 2's market share lead by 70% over the last year, from 27% to just 8%. In November 2003, Playstation 2 had 51% of the market to Xbox's 24%, now PS2 leads 45% to 37%. Xbox console sales increased 48%, compared to PS2's 18% decrease, while Xbox software sales increased 77%, compared to PS2's 1%. Xbox has all of the momentum moving towards the next-gen consoles. I think Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas proved that PS2 is a dead system; every review seemed to mention how much better the game would have played on Xbox.
