Price cut boost PS2 sales by 50 percent

Posted on Sunday, May 24 2009 @ 08:57:18 CEST by

NPD Group reports the old PlayStation 2 console beat the sales of the PlayStation 3 in the US last month, as a price cut propelled the sales of the PS2 by 50 percent.
The PS2's success was probably the only nugget of April sales news to put smiles on the faces of Sony execs. Nintendo platforms continued their lockdown of the top spots, with the Wii coming second and the DS coming both first and third, courtesy of the just-launched DSi: the DS's two hardware variations accounted for an astonishing million sales during April.Meanwhile, the Xbox 360 was down slightly over last April, but still managed a solid fourth place and remains on course for a record-breaking year.

But both the Playstation 3 and PSP posted disappointing results, with the PS3 placing sixth with its worst performance in over 18 months, and the PSP limping in seventh with a total of 116,000 sales -- down over 30% on March's numbers.
