PS3 Is Outselling 360's HD-DVD By 5 To 1.

The first sales numbers have arrived in the battle between PS3 and the X360 HD-DVD add on drive. And even though PlayStation 3 supply is still woeful, Sony has good reason to be happy.

According to Engadget, PS3 has outsold the X360 HD-DVD add-on drive by a margin of almost 5 to 1. In cold hard numbers, Sony's had every unit ship at 197,000 units, compared to the Microsoft's HD-DVD add on drive at 42,000 units.

Keep in mind, it's a bit of comparing apples to oranges. Not everyone that purchases a PS3 is going to be using the Blu-ray technology as a Movie player,but unlike the X360's HD-DVD drive the PS3 uses Blu-ray for games also.

But crunching numbers is still fun, anyhow.
