Pocket-Lint: Launched four-and-a-half years ago, the Sony PlayStation 3 has now exceeded the 50 million sales mark, shifting its landmark unit at the end of last month. And PlayStation Move has recently surpassed 8 million sales worldwide.
I expected it to take a lot longer than it did after the slow launch that it endured.
It hit that mark without a console less than $299, not bad at all.
Good to see the ps3 doing so well.
The PS3 is at 50m, the X360 is at 55m (or something) and the Wii's at 84m. This is like the first gen ever where all the consoles in it are doing mighty fine. Who ever thought that 6 consoles could coexist together? (PS2, PsP, PS3, X360, DS, Wii)
Sold to retailer, as in, shipped
no matter how well ps3 sells, its still seen as the inferior console.
