PS2 Shipment Figures are in
Results of Sonyís first-quarter hardware and software figures have been reported. Within the first quarter, Sony has shipped 3.2 million PSX units, bringing the total units to 85.4 million. Along with these figures, Sony has shipped 4.3 million PS2 units, bringing the total units to 14.9 million. These, of course, are hardware shipments and not sales.
In terms of software sales, the numbers go as followed. Last quarter, 18 million PSX units were shipped, bringing the total units to 783 million. Along with this time period, 11.5 PS2 games were shipped, bringing the total to 49.8 million. Expect a large increase in shipment once Christmas comes around, as the PS2 will be a primary sales opportunity.
