    Thanks for supplying software numbers.

    You don’t often see that.

    Luckily for the PS3, the European launch sold 600K units during launch weekend.

    I don’t normally pay attention to sales figures but it’s clear that Sony needs to drop the price of the PS3 in NA. Even the release of MotorStorm hasn’t boosted sales of the console by any meaningful margin.

    It’s a good job God of War 2 sold incredibly well and the PS2 is still going strong.

    The real crunch time is going to come towards the end of the year when some big name titles are released and if those don’t result in an increase of hardware sales for the PS3, Sony will have to take action.

    Sony has spun this a little. PS3 is the only console to see an increase in the month of March.

    Leave the price. 130k bought it and there aren’t even any games out. What Sony needs to do is get some friggin games out for this 600 dollar thing.
