PS3 Sales Hit 70 Million Worldwide
Sony Computer Entertainment has today announced PlayStation 3 sales have hit 70 million units worldwide as of November 4, 2012. The figure was reached just under six years after the platform launched in 2006.
Sony has also announced that sales of the PlayStation Move motion controller exceeded 15 million units worldwide as of November 11. Software sales have hit 595 million units sold worldwide.
Of particular interest is the fact that, based on these figures, sales of the PlayStation 3 appear to be only narrowly off those of the Xbox 360. It was revealed last month via Microsoft’s latest earnings report sales of the Xbox 360 had eclipsed 70 million units.
