Sony Ps3 Sales break new records

27 03 2007

ChartTrack has confirmed to that PS3 shifted 165,000 units in its first two days on sale, beating Wii’s 105,000 units and Xbox 360’s 70,000. There are issues with the semantics of terms like ‘shipped’ and ‘sold’, and the Gamesindustry article uses the latter.

Of course, direct comparisons are troublesome here as both Nintendo and Microsoft experienced chronic stock difficulties with their British next-gen launches – Sony, however, flooded us with 220,000 machines. More telling perhaps is the latest software sales Top 40, released by ChartTrack – from Gamasutra:

“According to software chart data, the PS3 release has also pushed a number of launch titles into the UK’s top 10 best sellers. Resistance: Fall of Man took the top slot in ChartTrack’s top 40, with Motorstorm Evolution coming behind at number two, and Virtua Tennis 3 at number four.

Formula One Championship Edition, Ridge Racer 7, Virtua Fighter 5, and Genji: Days of the Blade also debuted on the top 40 chart at numbers seven, 11, 14 and 16, respectively.”
