PS3 Slim outsells Xbox 360 and Nintendo Wii down under
Sony Australia reveals PS3 Slim console has sold "in excess of 60,000" units in the month and a half since launch, beating both the Xbox 360 and Wii for that time period.
Following the news last month that Sony sold 40,000 PlayStation 3 Slim units in the console’s first two and a half weeks in the Australian market, it appears the publisher has something to smile about yet again.
The latest sales figures from Sony indicate the AU$499 PS3 Slim has now sold “in excess of 60,000 units” in Australia, outselling both the Xbox 360 and the Wii since its Australian launch on September 3.
“I can confirm that in excess of 60,000 units of the PS3 120GB have been sold since launch,” a Sony spokesperson said. “I can also confirm that since the launch of the new model on September 3 [in Australia], total sales for the period since introduction have outperformed our competition.”
Sony also reported that despite low PSP Go sales of just over 1,000 units during launch week, the new console uplifted sales for the PSP platform as a whole in Australia.
“The PSP Go launch week resulted in a solid first week volume uplift of 100 percent for the PSP platform as a whole in Australia; this also includes PSP-3000 sales and PSP software sales. Strong IP lined up for the PSP platform has assisted this.”
