Sony announced two sales milestones today that affect both its
PlayStation 3 gaming console
and its PlayStation Move motion controller.
According to Sony, it has sold 70 million PlayStation 3 units globally as of November 4, 2012. This is the cumulative number since its launch in 2006.
Additionally, Sony has sold 15 million PlayStation Move motion controllers globally as of November 11, 2012 since its launch in 2010.
Back in September of this year, it was announced that Sony planned to release
a thinner PS3
starting at $270.
The latest PS3 console will be available in either 250GB and 500GB bundles. The 250GB bundle will come in either black or white and will have "Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception" Game of the Year Edition included. The price tag is set at $269.99. For those more interested in the 500GB model, it will come in black only alongside the "Assassin's Creed III" release
Sony also made huge changes to the Trophies section on the PS3 via a
system software update
(Version 4.30) in October.

XBOX and PS3 generate more revenue since the average Wii console sells 3 games, where the average XBOX/PS3 console sells over a dozen.
I'd also guess Live content is also far superior to Nintendo's Wii Store. I think Metroid 3 and other emulated games are cool and all, but the XBOX has far superior online content.

The only reason LIVE has better content--if it even does--is because MS has basically waved piles of cash in the faces of all the content owners. That's the only reason why games which were originally nintendo-specific are now only available on LIVE.
I will NEVER forgive MS for blocking DK64 being released on VC.

DK64 is a Rare title. Rare originally had a partnership with Nintendo, but when the company wanted to sell Nintendo was not interested. As a result Microsoft bought it. This is basic capitalism, not ms waving "piles of cash in the faces of all the content owners."
