PS3 Sells 3.9 Million During The Holidays
If you picked up a PlayStation 3 during the holiday season, you certainly weren't the only one.
At this year's Consumer Electronics Show, Sony revealed that they had sold 3.9 million PS3 consoles between November and December. That's pretty damn good.
It also means they're on target to hit their projected sales number for the fiscal year, which is 15 million; Sony's fiscal year ends on March 31. The PSP managed to sell 1.6 million units (outselling the new Vita for a few weeks), and another 500,000 PS2s also went out the door. You just can't kill that thing, you know? Here's what Sony had to say in a statement:
"SCE will continue to deploy various measures to further expand the PlayStation business with strong support from users as well as 3rd party developers and publishers, and will vigorously enhance the world of computer entertainment system that is possible only on the PlayStation platforms."
We've also heard from Sony that the Vita campaign will be quite hefty, which is good news. Of course, we have heard such promises from Sony before, and then things go kinda quiet...hopefully, that won't be the case this time. By the way, is anyone else interested to see the worldwide tallies for the PS3 and Xbox 360 now?
