PS3 is leading Euro market in 2012

As part of its investor presentation last night, Nintendo revealed that Sony’s PS3 has taken control of the European hardware market since the turn of the year.

Its data suggests that Sony has enjoyed weekly continental sales of between 100,00 and 50,000 units.

3DS is next in line with sales between 50,000 and 30,000 per week and Xbox 360 just behind, although Microsoft’s machine was selling far stronger until week six.

It’s a different story in Japan where 3DS is selling anything between 120,000 and 65,000 units per week – a decent performance considering the time of year. PS3 remains to sell strongly, too, peaking at nearly 70,000 unit sales in week nine.

In the US the Xbox 360 has maintained its now customary dominance, with PS3 the second best selling platform and 3DS the third.
