Sony says the latest numbers demonstrates the ‘continued popularity and momentum of the PS3 platform.’
As of December 17th, PS3 has sold 30 million units in Europe and Pal territories, Sony has announced.
The figures represent actual sales, and not shipped consoles.
“This is a major milestone for us and clearly shows just how popular the PlayStation brand and products are within Europe and the PAL territories,” said Jim Ryan, president and CEO of SCEE. “We are really pleased with the success of the PS3 system over the last six years, and are committed to continuing our support of the platform with high quality products and titles that are of the calibre that PlayStation fans have come to expect.”
Sony launched the original PS3 back in March 2007 in Europe, and just September this year a smaller, redesigned console was introduced.
SCEE says it will “continue to further expand the PS3 platform and create a world of computer entertainment that is only possible on PlayStation”.
