XBox 360 drops to 5th place

July 18, 2008

I had resigned myself to the thought that Microsoft was on its way to dominating the console gaming market, but according to Ars Technica, that may not be the case:

Having been surpassed by the PSP, the Xbox 360 sat in fifth place for June, having only moved 219,800 systems. Combined with the fact that the 360 version of Grand Theft Auto I__V has fallen completely off the top ten list, Microsoft’s sales seem less than stellar.

Surpassed by the lowly PSP? Yikes. Maybe XBox Vista will have better luck.
