PlayStation 3 Sales Up A Staggering Amount

An interesting snippet from MCV

Quote:
In news that may well mark the moment that PS3 finally turned the corner, Sony has announced that North American sales of the console for October are up 70 per cent compared to the same month in 2008.

Also significantly up year-on-year are downloads from PSN, with October seeing more revenue generated from the download portal than any other month to date. In total 650m pieces of content have been downloaded to date, with the number of registered users passing 31m.

“Many believe a console race is a 100-meter dash, but it’s really a marathon,” analyst Jesse Divnich if EEDAR stated.

“PS3’s growth in recent months is a perfect example of how a new low price along with upcoming innovative, exclusive titles such as MAG, Gran Turismo 5 and God of War III, will act as large catalysts for driving the PS3’s install base even higher.

“Add in the robust offerings on the PlayStation Network and there’s no doubt that PS3’s success will continue well throughout 2010, and beyond.”

The price drop is working splendidly coupled with a AAA game like Uncharted2.
Here's hoping to a better 2010

hopefully with all the great games coming out next year, there will be even more PS3s sold, then maybe we could recruit some ex-360 people and then maybe even make 360 fanboys dwindle in number

Sony better hope they sale more consoles. They are still preaching to the shareholders/media that they are on track to sell 13million PS3's this year (Sony's year ends in March 10). To date they have sold close to 5million PS3's. Only 8million more to go....
