David Reeves, President and CEO, SCEE reports:
"I'm happy to say that early last week we broke through the one million sell-through mark on PS3. That was sell-through across all PAL territories – and we achieved that in nine and a half weeks. That's faster than both PS2 and PSone.
And I think the analysts out there will realise it's faster than our brothers and sisters in the competitive world as well.
In terms of breakdown by Euro territories, the UK did very well. They are probably up to 25 per cent of business, so have made a great star. And we're particularly pleased with Iberia and France. They are neck and neck.
In terms of software, we've sold in about two million pieces of first party software. And the big ones are Resistance: Fall of Man at about 600,000 units and Motorstorm at just over the 500,000 mark. We're obviously very happy that thse two new IPs have done so well...."
