TGS 2011: PS3 At 51.8 Million, PSP Hits 71.4 Million
Sony's press conference at this year's Tokyo Game Show is taking place right now, and as usual, they've started with some statistics.
Most notably are the two updated worldwide sales numbers for the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Portable.
According to the current count, the PS3 has hit 51.8 million and the PSP has surpassed 71.4 million, which is pretty impressive considering that some people consider Sony's handheld to have "failed." And with global PS3 sales topping 50 million and a cheaper machine on the market (not to mention upcoming exclusives), the numbers should continue to rise. Of course, the possibility of topping the PS2 seems like an impossibility but who knows? Maybe in due time, the PS3 will close in on the insane worldwide stats of its predecessor; it'll take a few more price cuts and several more years, though.
Stay tuned as we catch everything important from Sony's keynote address. Here's hoping for a US release date for the PlayStation Vita!
