How does it feel to be laughed at by the entire world for over 2 years now?

You are not gamers. People dont consider you gamers. People consider you IDIOTS.

I am sure they have plenty of outlandish claims to try to downplay this.

Great news indeed. I'm not really into these sales kinda thing, But I could safely say, that during September the PS3 sold like hotcakes in Japan, Europe, heck even in NA, uhm... everywhere.

i think at the end of September, they could probably sell close to 1M PS3 slim worldwide.

Awesome sales!

Although VgChartz may have slightly overestimated it seeing as they said in the article that they predicted a 400% increase.

The key for Sony really is how long will this boost last.
