Sales of the PlayStation 3 are up significantly. Game Daily reports sales increased 298% since November 2:
Furthermore, Sony said that on a year-on-year basis, PS3 hardware sales were up 245 percent compared to Black Friday sales last year. And since November 2, when the new 40GB SKU and the reduced in price ($499) 80 GB model both were available, Sony said PS3 hardware sales are up 298 percent.
Officials did not provide software sales data, but we would guess that top titles such as Guitar Hero III, Rock Band, Assassin's Creed and PS3 exclusives such as Ratchet & Clank Future and Uncharted: Drake's Fortune were big drivers for the PS3.
As for Sony's other platforms, the company said that PSP hardware sales increased by 136 percent compared to the previous week, while PS2 hardware sales increased by 287 percent compared to the previous week.
