Wow, has it been a year already?!
Sony today is celebrating the PlayStation 3s’ first anniversary. The console has certainly had its fair share of difficulties thanks to high price points and a lack of “killer apps.”
Also Sony announced that quite a few PS3s have been sold, but still it’s got nothing on the Wii which is the fastest selling console ever, even surpassing PS2.
According to Sony, the PS3 has now sold 5.6 million units worldwide, 2 million of which have been purchased in North America. The company’s worldwide sales goal for next March remains 11 million units. Sony also noted that year to date sales of PS3 in Japan and EMEA outsold Xbox 360 by three-to-one.
