Sony Sells 440,000 PS3 Slim Systems During Thanksgiving Week
Sony's PlayStation 3 Slim entertainment system seems to be picking up the pace this holiday season, as VentureBeat.com (linked above) reports that 440,000 PS3 consoles were sold during Thanksgiving Week this year.
To quote from SCEA's Sr. Director of Corporate Communications and Social Media Patrick Seybold:
"The 2009 holiday season got off to an amazing start for PlayStation, with all key retailers showing a significant increase for PS3, PSP and key holiday titles over Black Friday and the holiday weekend.
PlayStation 3 demand was at an all time high with the system selling more than 440,000 units for the week ending 11/29/09."
That just proves the only reason why PS3 sales were low was because of the price. but the slim makes up for that and this weeks shown exactly how much sony and playstation are still very very strong competitors and are not falling behind at all!
Everything is relative. I still think it won't match the ps2 in sales performance and longevity but its still a good showing by sony. We of course dont see what the 360 or wii sold during the same period.
