Last month Sony revealed that it has sold about 70million units since the consoles launch, which more or less puts it neck and neck with the overall sales of the XBOX 360, and today Sony Computer Entertainment Europe announced that 30million of those PS3’s have been sold across Europe and PAL territories.
“This is a major milestone for us and clearly shows just how popular the PlayStation brand and products are within Europe and the PAL territories”, said Jim Ryan, President and CEO of SCEE. “We are really pleased with the success of the PS3 system over the last six years, and are committed to continuing our support of the platform with high quality products and titles that are of the caliber that PlayStation fans have come to expect.”
After a slow start, the PS3 has really kicked into gear these past few years and with 2013 promising The Last of Us and Beyond: Two Souls, sales of Sony’s console should continue to remain solid until the arrival of their next system.
