Why is this surprising? There's no better console for the console gamers to purchase. All they can do is repurchase the same console again and again.

not a surprise. no matter what fanboys say, i think the xbox 360 was the best console of this generation. . ( i own both so im no fanboy)

Impressive.

I bought a new 4GB 360 Slim just after Black Friday. Cashing in some unused pre-order credit at GameStop, it was $126.

I sold my "Falcon" revision 360 with an old 20GB HDD and the Microsoft a/b/g/n wireless adapter on Amazon for (after shipping and Amazon's cut) $160.

I bought it because I made a profit on upgrading to a more reliable system with built-in wireless. I took apart my 60GB HDD and plugged it into the Slim, so I kept all my old data.

I used to be a huge Playstation fanboy through the PS1 and PS2 era, but I've got two YLOD 60GB PS3's laying around, and unlike the classic series 360s I've had RROD, I can't get them back running with a little heatgun work and some new AS5 on the heatsink.

I wouldn't really say Sony is much older. They "only" really got into the console game in late 1994 with the PS1 (17 years old), which is just 7 years before the original Xbox (10 years old). (this is not including that fact that Ken Kutaragi designed the SNES's sound chip).

Mathematically, that means that MS has been in the console business for 59% of the years that Sony has. That's not exactly what I'd call "much more older".

I mean, even if you count Sony having made the SNES's sound chip, Nintendo by comparison has been doing video games since the 70s!
