for a console that is still the most expensive out of the three (nevermind the real total when you add up all the features; I'm just talking price here), for it to do that well is great. Good job Sony. The ad campaign really worked.

PS3 has gained tons of momentum since the price cut. All Sony has to do is capitalize on the games this year. Which with the titles scedueled to drop this year, seems very likely.

Like I always say.......let the numbers do the talking

Other than the fact that Sony has ALL of their bases covered.

They have a product for the casual consumers, the hardcore consumers, and the mobile consumers.

Anybody think the PS2 will reach ten years? It might sound like a lot but when the PS2 came out I would have laughed if you told me it would sell like this after 7. Sony seems to have made a lot of important decisions concerning continual support for the PS2 and implementing blu-ray in the PS3.

I bet Ken Kutaragi is laughing in his mansion screaming "I told you so!"

Agreed!!! They have to be doing something to sell 1.2 million with each going at an average of $500(for all SKU's). And to think, all the fanboys said the PS3 was a flop. I would say 1.2 million during the holiday season and about 7 million in total is one hell of a flop!! And I can see the PS2 going 10 years though the support will probably die down in late 2008/early 2009.

november NPD for the had it so that that they sold 465K+ and they sold and if you ad VGcharts they sold about 570+k so if you add that up that

that accounts for a very strong sell through in the states 1.3 million PS3's not bad, but world wide the other million came up from EU/UK/AU, and JAPAN...

Dayum!!! dats hot. 2 million PS3's in a month ^^ and 1.3 of them came from the states. just think what the field will be after Sony uses it's 5 big games this year...

GT5, GTA, MGS4, Killzone 2 and LBP. man my mouth is froathing at the thought of just playing those titles this year ^^ cant wait for those games
