Sony has this morning announced that 70 million PS3s have been sold, pushing the console very close to the sort of levels Microsoft announced last month for the Xbox 360, despite the PlayStation 3 releasing almost a year later.
In the press release, originating from Japan, SCE also announced that 15 million Move motion controllers had been sold, although that figure appears to relate to units sold through to retail, rather than individual end users.
There are 3,590 games now for PS3, with more than 595 million units sold.
Other figures listed includes PlayStation Network being available in 59 countries and regions, there are 170,000 items of downloadable content for the PS3 and, finally, there are more than 400 games that support Move.
