Awesome news. I know a lot of us are waiting for spring and summer releases (or fall and winter releases in the US), so i can only see the sales getting better with time. Price drop probably isn't coming anytime soon, but that would help a lot too.

this is not good at alll for playstation.i remember few weeks ago sony australia CEO said PS3 outselling 360 and the wii in week by week bases , how if it took PS3 13 weeks to reach what wii reached in 5 / 360 reached in 6 week

i remember that same exact article...kind of funny. it looks like sony once again was completely misleading or blatantly lying about it's sales of the ps3, as if no one would notice. lol

nov 2005:
xbox 360 was released with no next gen competition - market to itself It would be a year later that the wii & Ps3 were released.

nov 2006:
Ps3 released against an ESTABLISH next-gen console(xbox 360) that had an existing large selection of games + a novel and more advanced old-gen console(Wii) that is half the price.

Do the maths.
13 weeks is not bad considering THE COMPETITION and PRICING.

...LIKE, had things been reversed(ps3 releaseD in 2005 & xbox 360 in 2006) do you seriously think 50,000 wouldn't have been achieved faster. Get real!

its the melting Greenland ice - shelf that I'm worried about and all of the loss of life. Good job for SNE since there "are no games" and it costs $600.00. Some people just have to have it ~ it seems ; )
