PS3 sales hit 3 Million

According to www.vgchartz.com the PS3 has now broken the 3 million mark in sales. Not shipped but actually sold.

Now I  wrote an article before about Sony maintaining that they would ship/sell 6 Million by the end of their March Financial year. They have obviously missed that target but I don’t think anyone could really say that selling 3 million so quickly could be a bad thing.

The PS3 is still trailing the Wii by a long margin and obviously the Xbox 360 is still coming first since it has had a years head start, but the Wii and PS3 are catching the Xbox 360 quite quickly now.

I however don’t change my prediction, the Xbox 360 will get a massive price drop towards the end of this year and along with Halo 3 will outsell the PS3 over the next holiday season and will keep it’s lead ahead of the PS3 until the 2008 holiday season at least.

I don’t actually see the PS3 overtaking the Xbox 360 by any considerable margin until at least 2009/2010 just before the next Xbox is getting ready for it’s release.

This is going to be close….

    A fanboy with a blog, just what the world need more of. Wow, you really do have a hard-on for Microsoft. Do you think you’ll get a free lap dance from a Microsoft employee everytime you say something positive about the 360? Do you think you’re helping them sell more consoles with this inverted nepotism?
