In total, the PS3 has accounted for 70 million worldwide sales. That figure, however, represents total consoles shipped and not necessarily sold.

By comparison, Microsoft has sold 70 million Xbox 360 consoles as of October and Nintendo has shifted 97 million Wii systems as of September.

The PS3 launched in Europe in March 2007, four months after it debuted in North America.
