donniebaseball23 writes: Xbox 360 has been having an incredible year so far in 2011, but on a global scale Sony's PS3 is still gaining ground. In fact, this year PS3 has outpaced Xbox 360 by 10% worldwide, analysts have pointed out. While the Wii has clearly won the race for this console generation, the battle for second place is neck and neck, and PS3 has a good shot of overtaking Xbox 360. "As for second place, as far as the hardcore market is concerned, I'd say PS3 is a strong contender for that position," commented M2 Research analyst Billy Pidgeon.
