eGames 07: PlayStation 3 sales pass 100,000 In Australia

Sony has announced that sales of the PlayStation 3 have passed 100,000 in Australia. This means the 100,000 milestone has been reached in a faster time period than the PlayStation 2.

The PlayStation 3 sales were obviously helped along by the recent price drop, which saw the 40GB PlayStation 3 launch for $699.95. The new 40GB PlayStation 3 cannot play PlayStation 2 games, but is similar to the previous PlayStation 3 console released.

wow $699.95 is a lot of tax

Irving3541d ago

I think thats in Aus dollars. But its still above 600$ USD.

the_bebop3541d ago

Thats right $699.95 which includes 10% GST.

Bathyj3541d ago

Dont forget, its been here less than 8 months.

gEnKiE3541d ago

I'm waiting for somebody to say thats including the PS2 sales also....

Sony's doing well "now" and "after the fact" The problem is... Damage is done. Lots of it. Most of it inflicted by the media and now idiots who have no voice of their own are buying into it.

R&C and Uncharted are the 2 best next gen games I've played to date on any system. Nothing topped either experience. Nothing. I love Mass Effect, but it's just too expansive for me. It's clearly going to be Game of the year this year, but R&C and Uncharted sure gave me a thrilling ride. Ps3 owners shouldn't miss those two games. All I gotta say.

Then buy Mass Effect! "ha"

"Our figures show that Xbox 360 has been the fastest ever console to sell 100,000 units in Australia, reaching that mark in just seven months," said Daniel Morse, senior account manager at GfK Australia.

the ps3 is not going to ever suprass the 360, to far behind and developers prefere the 360 and gamers too

the_bebop3541d ago

That maybe true however if the PS3 had launched here in Australia with the 20 gig PS3 and had the price of the 60 gig PS3 been more in line with the US price and not the Euro then the PS3 would have sold over 100,000 PS3 in seven months or less. Also the launch Price of the 360 was $650 were the PS3 at launch for the 60 gig version was $999.

every time there's good news for one side the someone on the other side has to drop their pants and show that they have a bigger penis.

Bathyj3541d ago (Edited 3541d ago )

You're like an insecure little kid. I could tell a story about how I caught a 60 inch fish and you would show up and say, well I caught a 62 inch fish, woohoo, I'm better, my penis must be bigger than yours. You're so pathetic.

And since you had to bring it up even though this story has nothing to do with Xbox, it was just a bit of good news for PS3 lets look at that comparison.

XB sold 100K in 7 months or just under. PS3 hasnt even been out 8 months here so its done the same feat, maybe a month slower. BIG FKN DEAL billy. You're so petty you dont even realise Xbox had all the advantages and PS3 had all the disadvantages and PS3 was just a month slower, and probably would have been quicker if it had a Christmas here yet. What do you say to that?

XBox was 25% cheaper, had NO competition (just the way M$ and their bots like it), had all the devs sucking up just because it was the only next gen machine in town.

PS3 had NO CHRISTMAS sale here yet, and that has to count for something. Was another 1/3 of the price of an XB dear and twice as much as a Wii. Had Competition from the established XB and the run away Wii, had dev struggling to learn the new system, had a tsunami of bad press from every site looking for easy hits, not to mention a flood of dikheads like you with nothing better to do. Oh yeah, and no games, even though I have bought 12 since March.

All those advantages for Xbox and all those disadvantages for PS3, and yet, they were nearly level. That like me being behind Carl Lewis in a 100M sprint by 2/10ths of a second. Actually it kind of makes PS3 look pretty successful, or Xb pretty dismal, depending how you want to look at it.

I've said from the start if PS3 was close to XB sales the first year with the disadvantages it had, (mainly the fact it just has competition while XB had none and shoould have sold 15M the first year,) then PS3 would be doing ok. Well guess why, I think PS3 is doing ok, and so do you, thats why you feel so threatened all the time.

3 disagrees with a FACT! wow I didn't know you could disagree with a fact...hmmmm

posted by you

you put up this big act but every now and then your as fanboy as any one else, the rest of the time you contribute nothing to discussion you just make farced comments to make fun of others...good for you!

Douchebaggery3541d ago

I'm glad you cared enough to dig through my comment history

"you just make farced comments to make fun of others"

Yes I do cuz I find this whole console war bullsh!t f*cking retarded and people take it way too seriously, if you read my comments and can't tell I'm being sarcastic well that's your problem.

I own and enjoy both the x360 and the PS3, I take no pleasure in bashing a piece of plastic I prefer making fun of fanboys and trying to make them realise how f*cking pointless and juvenile this console war is.

You can call me a fanboy if that makes you feel better and I won't deny that my "attacks" I've targeted mostly towards x360 fanboys but that's only because they're the most entertaining.

You'd probably have more fun if you weren't...

Dont put words in my mouth bill. When I said that line I had no idea how long XB took to sell that many, nor did I, or do I care. I simply pointed it out since it was a Aussie article and most people not in OZ, ei the rest of the world tend not to keep track of the goings on here. I thought they might like not only how many but how quickly since it wasnt mentioned. And then you accuse me of being a fanboy? Seriously, grow up. You dont belong in this thread for so many reasons and people like you are a big reason why I like my PS3 better than XB. Who knows, I might like XB more but you bots really turn me off it because I would associate with someone like you let alone want to play online or anything. Do things like that ever cross your mind when you flaming and trolling?

Are you kidding dude? Do you know how paranoid and insecure you sound?!

I didnt think for a minute that Bathyj's comment was comparing it to the Xbox. There wasn't any mention of the Xbox, I took it as saying sales were doing well, especially considering it was only there 8 months. Is he not allowed to be positive about the PS3 Will? Should he have been more careful not to set off your delicate insecurity? Jesus dude, just relax. No one wants to take your Xbox from you, its doing just fine.

Oh, and the disagree's may not be disagreeing with fact, they may be disagreeing with your trolling and attempting to start a flame war. Then you replied and it became apparent you didn't try to start one, its just that your strange insecure bias caused you to feel threatened and already perceive a flame war the minute you saw a positive news thread for the PS3.
