Sony France talk PS3 sales

Some PS3 numbers from George Fornay of SCE France:

* First week PS3 sales of nearly 40,000 (another report put the exact figure at 37,000).

* Previous weeks PS3 was selling 4,000 - 5,000.

* YTD sales of 300,000 in 2009.

* Target is to sell 900,000 - 1,000,000 hardware units and 6,000,000 sotware units this year.

* 530,000 hardware units sold in 2007, 715,000 hardware units & 4,200,000 software units sold in 2008 (these numbers are slightly different to previously announced numbers, maybe there has been an adjustment).


  1. Do you remember this link:

    They already said for 2008 715000 ps3 and 571000 xbox 360.

    So i think you should change the number of the 360 too for 2008.

    For the LTD of 2007, i suppose they changed the LTD of the xbox 360 too, but we don't know the new number.

    If you remember some others update, we can suppose they overtracked the 360 too a little bit in 2007. So maybe 20000 units. They said that for the end of may 2009 that the ps3 has less than 100000 more units that the 360. So 1315000 is more plausible now. Which explain why i think that the LTD of 2007 has been revised 20000 units down. Maybe less than that, but we don't know.

  2. Thanks Lombard, how does that look?
