PlayStation 3 hits 70 million units sold

PlayStation 3 hits 70 million units sold
Sony has announced today that the PS3 has now reached 70 million global sales as of the beginning of November.

Additionally, the company has sold 15 million PlayStation Move motion controllers.



Says Sony: "The PS3 system has delivered high quality, award-winning entertainment experiences since its launch. Throughout its lifecycle, the PS3 system has continued to evolve with more streamlined design, larger Hard Disk Drive (HDD) capacity, and new features through software updates. In September 2012, SCE launched the new PS3 system, which has a reduced volume and weight of more than 50 percent compared to the original PS3 model, and of 25 percent and 20 percent respectively compared to the slim PS3 model launched in 2009. The new PS3 has been well received by consumers around the world."

The company launched the PS3 in 2006, a year after Microsoft revealed their Xbox 360.

Microsoft recently announced that 70 million Xboxes had been sold, meaning the two rivals are neck and neck in the race for global supremacy (way behind the Wii).

    It's just a shame Sony are charging 10 for the piece of metal to hold the hard drive in place properly, for those of us who bought 12GB models because we already had our own drives.

    The 12GB model was a dumb idea anyway. I hope it doesn't go anywhere outside Europe and they soon drop it there.
