PlayStation has a good holiday

After a slow start, the PlayStation 3 seems to be picking up steam!

The November price drop along with the holiday season meant good sales all around, as PS3 sales during the holidays in the US equaled out to about two-thirds of the year’s sales up to that point.

  • PS3: 1.2 million
  • PS2: 1.3 million+
  • PSP: 1.4 million

It’s weird to see the PS2 sell so many systems when the next-gen competitor is on the market, but at the same time it’s quite a bit cheaper to buy a PS2 or a PSP and each of them have a fairly sizeable library to game with. Microsoft’s decision to stop selling the original Xbox makes a bit more sense when you think about it that way. It would constantly eat at the possible userbase of the 360 – kind of like the PS2 is doing to the PS3.

Up until November though, the PS3 sold 1.7 million consoles and sold another 1.2 million due to the holidays? Not too shabby, Sony… Not shabby at all.

This just highlights a fact that people have been spouting all along: expensive consoles don’t sell as well as cheaper ones! The price drop likely had a lot to do with this.
