Sony sells millionth PS3 in North America

Posted on Wednesday, January 10 2007 @ 03:10:19 CET by

Sony announced it has sold its millionth PlayStation 3 console in North America:
Sony said back in 2006 that it would only be able to ship 400 thousand of PlayStation 3 game consoles to the North America and 100 thousand to Japan for the launch in November, 2006. The manufacturer failed to meet its “day one” shipments targets due to manufacturing issues. During the whole calendar year 2006 the company aimed to distribute, according to news reports, two million new-generation consoles, two times less than anticipated originally. However, with only one million PS3s sold in North America and the lack of any claims regarding sales numbers for Japan, it is highly likely that Sony did not ship two million PlayStation 3 game consoles in calendar 2006.

Still, even one million sold next-generation consoles in one of Sony’s important regions indicates that the PlayStation 3 is still very popular among consumers despite its pretty high retail pricing.
