Sony: PS3 “the only platform” with growth in software over September of nearly 50%

Sony has responded to last night’s NPD figures, and has said it is seeing strong movement at retail for both hardware and software.

The firm claimed sales were “incredibly strong in October” with PS3 the “only platform that had growth in the software over September” to the tune of nearly 50 percent.

“With next week’s launch of the industry’s most anticipated title, Gran Turismo 5, we’re sure to carry the momentum through the holidays,” said SECA’s senior director of corporate communications, Patrick Seybold.

What are the current attach rates for all 3 consoles? I find it funny that you easily take Sony's quote at face value with no numbers being given at all (from the source posted).

Edit:

"Sony has responded to last night's NPD figures, and has said it is seeing strong movement at retail for both hardware and software."

"The firm claimed sales were "incredibly strong in October" with PS3 the "only platform that had growth in the software over September" to the tune of nearly 50 percent"

September?

"While neither Sony nor Nintendo provided any unit sales figures for PS3 or Wii"

I wonder why!!

M4ndat0ry_1nstall=Omega surely LOL

First he complains that there aren't any trolls in the Kinect Germany launch thread and now he is here bashing a PS3 article.

Typical nature of a fanboy

"Its weird how all those fanboys get debubbled but this guy (mandatory) ^ i dont get it."

It's because
1. N4G is owned by an Xbox fanboy.
1. The mods are Xbox fanboys.
2. N4G is affliated with Microsoft. Do some digging. There evidence is all there.

I mean basicly they are saying, "hey although we didn't sell more hardware or software than 360, at least we sold more software in Oct compared to our Sept sales vs 360 which sold less software in Oct than they did in Sept"..... "shhhh maybe nobody will notice its because 360 is down from the amazing software sales of Halo Reach in Sept". lol, again its just PR and that was the best news sony could find.

Ju2586d ago

Yeah. Surprisingly. That s usually how MS operates.

xXxSeTTriPxXx2586d ago

sony has been selling more software for the past 2 (going on three yrs).yeah M$ has 1 mega hit in halo, gears sells like 5 to 6 million (releases every 3yrs) and cod for the 360 see around 55-60% of console sells (also a annual to 2yr releases)these are M$ heavy hitters they have nothing else.

but other then that, m$ doesn't have games to sell lol.and anything thats not a shooter flops (looking at good games like alan wake).so how is this hard to grasp?...

likedamaster2586d ago

Is this not the best Sony spin you've ever heard? Congrats Sony... I think.
