According to Sony there has been a massive upturn in PS3 sales since the release of the cheaper 40GB model, with figures as much as a 300% increase being mentioned. It’s been a tough year for Sony with the company receiving a lot of stick for the high-priced machine. CEO Howard Stringer can see the light though:
Obviously, we’ve taken so much heat over the year on PS3. Finally, the turning point has been passed.
This bodes very well for the Christmas silly season and the overall future of the PS3. There a number of quality exclusives either just released or about to release, so there’s never been a better time to get in on the fun.
