Sony Corp. on Friday said that it had sold 50 million units of its PlayStation 3 game console and also shipped 8 million of PlayStation Move motion-sensing controllers. It took Sony about four and half years to achieve the 50 million milestone for PS3 and still the console is the worst-selling system in this generation.
As of March 29, 2011, sold-in (to retailers) number of Sony PlayStation 3 game console surpassed 50 million units. As of April 3. 2011, Sony itself sold 8 million of its Move motion-sensing controllers for the PS3, which allow to play specially-developed games. Since Sony reports the number of units it shipped to its partners, it is unknown how many of PS3s and Moves were actually purchased by the end-users, but it is clear that the numbers are close.
