Statistics published by top game developer Tose show that with 42 million the total number of PS3s sold globally have exceeded the Xbox 360 by a million units.

The statistics coe by way of a presentation by Tose (a prolific Kyoto-based game developer best known for not being known, as their games as usually credited exclusively to the company outsourcing the work to them, most often Nintendo) at the Kyoto Cross Media Experience 2010, published by Famitsu.

Update: Tose is apologising, saying it made an “error” in its figures for Xbox 360 sales, undercounting sales by 3 million units (and hence having erroneously implied the Xbox 360 was in the lead), having probably not realised its slide would become the subject of innumerable articles keen to point out the supposed change in leadership.
