PS3 Still Suffering In The US

We’re not Sony.  We don’t own Sony shares.  We’re not bankrolled by Sony.  And good, because if we were we’d be down the Job Centre, or whatever it’s called these days.  Not that we’re suggesting everyone at Sony should do the same, mind, because sales across the PS Brand are pretty good, but when your Blu-ray playing multimedia powerhouse is only selling half as much as the nearest competitor, and a third as much as the bloody Wii, well, you know, it’s time for a price cut.

So, anyway, here’s the stats for American console sales last month:

– ARTICLE CONTINUES BELOW –

PS2 410K
PS3 726K
PSP 1.02M
X360 1.44M
Wii 2.15M
DS 3.04M

And the top 10 selling games:

WII PLAY W/ REMOTE 1.46M
360 CALL OF DUTY: WORLD AT WAR 1.33M
WII FIT W/ BALANCE BOARD 999K
WII MARIO KART W/ WHEEL 878K
WII GUITAR HERO WORLD TOUR 859K
360 GEARS OF WAR 2 745K
360 LEFT 4 DEAD 629K
NDS MARIO KART 540K
PS3 CALL OF DUTY: WORLD AT WAR 533K
WII ANIMAL CROSSING: CITY FOLK 497K

Would Sony be better off ditching the PS2 now, and concentrating their efforts on the PS3?  Is the multiple console approach confusing customers?  Are the PS3 exclusives like LittleBigPlanet really not good enough to break the top 10 sales chart for the month?  Is gaming going down the pan (looking at you, Wii Play)?  We don’t have the answers, we’re just concerned PlayStation fans.

And yeah, we’re hoping Killzone 2 will turn the tide, too.
