Sony Computer Entertainment New Zealand (SCENZ) announced today that the new slimline PlayStation®3 (PS3™) 120GB console has enjoyed a very successful debut in New Zealand; with more than 4,600 units sold between launch on the 3 September up to 20 September.
PS3 was the number one selling console in New Zealand during launch week and official GfK figures reveal the console has held that position each week since its launch. This news comes as SCE globally announced yesterday at Tokyo Games Show the introduction of a PS3 250GB console launching this October and a Motion Controller arriving mid-2010.
David Hine, Sales and Marketing Director, Sony Computer Entertainment New Zealand said, “The new PlayStation 3 slim model has experienced exceptionally strong sales in the New Zealand market. Sales exceeded 4,600 units in 17 days and sold through more than 2,800 in the first 4 days alone.”
