PlayStation 3 sells 70 million units worldwide
Sony reveals that 70 million PlayStation 3 consoles were sold to stores worldwide as of November 2012; PlayStation Move controller shifted 15 million units by November 11.
While 2012 saw Sony's game division suffering losses, the Japanese company marked a milestone this month by selling 70 million PlayStation 3 consoles worldwide. The 70 million figure refers to sell-in figures, which means units sold to retail outlets, rather than direct sales to the public. By contrast, Nintendo reported the Wii had sold 97.18 million units as of September 2012, while Microsoft announced the Xbox 360 had sold 70 million units by October 2012.
Sony also announced that its PlayStation 3 Move motion controller has surpassed 15 million sales worldwide since launching on September 15, 2010 in Europe. Sony claims that Move is now supported by more than 400 software titles as of this month, including Wonderbook: Book of Spells, which launched this week in North America and Europe.
Other statistics released by Sony today include the PlayStation Network now housing 170,000 pieces of downloadable content, including 57,000 pieces of game-specific content. On the software side, there are now 3,590 software titles available for PlayStation, with sales of those titles reaching more than 595 million units worldwide.
