360 sales vs. Sony flak

A considerable number of Xbox 360 consoles were sold during Thanksgiving week, Microsoft has announced. The company says that slightly more than 310,000 360s were bought during the period, which is typically devoted to sales for Christmas and Hanukkah shoppers. While this number is still less than the 350,000 Wiis quoted by Nintendo, it represents an amount greater than what Microsoft might normally sell in a month. Microsoft also says it expects to sell more games this holiday season than the figures for the Wii and PlayStation 3 combined.

Sony takes issue with one Microsoft claim however, which is that the 360 outsold the PS3 by a two-to-one ratio. Sony is refusing to disclose how much it actually sold, insisting that the press must wait until NPD data is released on December 13th; it is hinted, however, that the total may be as much as 245 percent higher than sales from Thanksgiving week last year.
