    That isn’t seriously accurate, is it? PS3 sales are approaching 2-to-1 in the US if so, which is… pretty major!

  • Høegh

    It is as accurate as it can be.
    My guess is that MGS4 helped a bit.

  • Trigga_Tybalt

    what’s major is how the PS2 is almost outselling the 360 O_o

  • Bilzac

    lol thats sorta funny, but its nice to c such good sale results for the both the ps3 and mgs4, helps stir confidence in 3rd party exclusive sales *cough*Square enix*cough* . Oh and did anybody hear that microsoft are going to announce a medal system, a medal is awarded for every achievement. It seems like Sony copied microsoft first and now microsoft is copying sony :S..lol..dont mean to be a fanboy or anythin but microsoft needs some original ideas , lips is singstar , be in the movies or watever is eyetoy games on ps2, avatar is mix of mii and home characters.

  • Sadly these numbers will drop until Sony’s other big guns are released later this year.

    @Bilzac
    Microsoft is desperately trying to steal any thunder Sony musters. I remember hearing how they were borrowing money to buy Yahoo. M$ is going to sink itsself if they keep throwing around cash for everything.

  • Darrin

    Oh, these numbers are accurate. It’s because MGS4 was in mid-June. Unfortunately, most are expecting things to return to normal next month. Great job, MGS4!!

  • I find it interesting at how good the PSP is doing now… That can only mean good new games coming to us 😀

    And other than that… the big games will start coming now as we are approaching XMas now, fast. And I hope, this shows publishers, that even games not released around Xmas can sell well (see MGS4 or GTA4).

    What’s on the schedule for August and September?!?

  • blizac: excellent point about 3rd party exclusives and squenix

  • Del

    Expect PS3 sales to plummet until September. What idiot will pay money for a 40GB now when they can wait six weeks and get an 80GB for the same price?

    Sony really should have knocked £50/$100 off the remaining 40GB stock. I guess they’re hoping retailers will take the hit (not happening yet).

    This truely is Good news. It seems like Sony themselves under utilize the power of Exclusive rights to triple A titles. Jack Tretton himself said that Sony is not into the business of Buying Exclusive rights. I guess they did not think one really good game could boost Sales. I hope looking at these Graphs and other data from NDP they will change their minds. I do see Sony’s point somwhat , that there are only a handfull of games that are exclusive for each system. But it seems like it is getting harder and harder to differentiate themselves from each-other. Especially if MS keeps buying anything and everything to be more like the PS3. Soon we will see Blu-Ray Xbox 360s. Its going to be a slow process if this continues, sony the time is now to lock up some Great Triple A titles that should boast a little leverage over the Xbox. Use some of the money you get from TV Sales, lord knows you guys are doing amazing there.”
