If anyone can't see that the sales numbers are old now, they are clearly idiots. What are the chances that the 41.6 million number is used now when it is EXACTLY the same as in October.

PS3 will outsell the SNES eventually...

zootang2841d ago

It is the number of PS3's connected to PSN!

Army_of_Darkness2841d ago

I don't understand why all these fanboys are making such a big deal about it?!?! It has nothing to do with my gaming experience!! it doesn't effect my gaming experience!! people! STFU!

jimbone792841d ago

Zootang you are wrong. They are just old numbers, not the # of PS3's connected to PSN. Please stop saying that, YOU ARE WRONG.

Misunderstood people should learn maths

Mystogan2841d ago

things are not going well for Sony, first the jailbreak and hackerz ruling the ps3,then they got the PS3 banned in europe and now caught lying about their numbers.

Now we are starting to see Sony's real colors.

Oh Mystogan, if you're not going to read the article, at least have the courtesy to read the DAMN HEADLINE of the article your posting your bleating in!

"The slide shows at the top "PSN Market - How Big is it?" Sony provided information to developers, which they had gained from before they announced their last quarter's financial results last month. This would give developers a more accurate depiction of the PSN market "

Zootang is correct! Can't you people read?? 41.6 out of the 47.9 million PS3 sold are online w/PSN accounts! Now how that translates to actual sales in DL content is another issue.

Is this "sales game" a strategy game or an MMO? Just wondering. People seem to really enjoy it

Baka-akaB2841d ago

i dunno at least in a mmo they's gain gears as they grind .
Here nothing of value seems gained from the constant stroking of sales and cheers at failures

HolyOrangeCows2841d ago

The truth finally gets posted and it doesn't even make it up to the top stories with the lies created by PS3-haters.

Hopefully that changes.

Starhawk2841d ago

Total as of Q4 2010 : 47.9M
