100 Million PS2’s | PS3Blog.net
One hundred million dollars! ** Ahem… ** One hundred million PlayStation 2 consoles! Yup, Sony has now shipped 100 million PS2 consoles, and it breaks down like this:
Cumulative console shipments by territory give a total of 40.65 million units in North America, 37.14 million units in Europe/other PAL territories and 22.22 million units in Japan and other Asian countries.
What’s interesting is that the PS2 has shipped almost double the number of units to North America than to Asia.
Also, there have been 6,200 titles for the PS2 released, which is slightly less than the number of PSone software titles. But still, 6,200 is a very healthy number. I wonder how many of those will work on the PS3?
So, what do you think? Will Sony ship 100 million PS3 consoles within 5 years and 9 months, like the PS2? Or better? Worse? Discuss here or in the forum.
