PS3 will beat 360 by summer - Reeves

Already winning in France, Spain etc.

Sony Computer Entertainment Europe boss David Reeves has said PlayStation 3 is outselling Xbox 360 three times over in Europe.

"In terms of installed base in some of our major markets, such as France, Spain, Germany and Italy - plus some distributor territories in smaller markets like Switzerland - our current cumulative installed base is now higher than Xbox 360," Reeves told trade publication MCV.

"It has not yet reached that in the UK. But the team here expect to overtake the installed base of Xbox 360 across all PAL territories in late summer," he added.

"It's also worth mentioning that last week we outsold Xbox 360 in PAL territories by a ratio of three to one."

According to Reeves, PS3, PS2 and PSP all sold more than a million units each in PAL countries during December. Around 20 per cent of the PS3 units shifted were purchased in the UK.
