Via The Dallas Morning News:
"They say the darkest hour is right before the dawn. Sony better hope so.
The final December U.S. sales tallies for each console came in this week, and the news was great for Nintendo (1.35 million Wiis sold), good for Microsoft (1.26 million Xbox 360s) and OK for Sony (1.1 million PS3s).
Oops, sorry, that's how many PlayStation 2 consoles Sony sold. The company rang up just 798,000 PS3 systems.
In other words, since Sony is still struggling to break even on the PS3, the seven-year-old PS2 remains by far the company's most successful console. That's certainly a testament to the PS2's capabilities and top-notch game library. But it's also an indictment of the PS3, and a painful reminder that Sony has, so far, managed to disregard every lesson it should have learned from its past two consoles."
