Earlier this month Sony has reported that the company has sold over sold 1.8 million Playstation 3‘s, 1.8 million Playstation Portables and another 1.4 million Playstation 2′s worldwide during the first quarter (Q1) between the month of April 1 and June 30 , though the numbers have slipped, dropping from around 600,000 units from Q1 of last year (2010), Sony still predicts an imporvement in sales for the year 2011: as Sony has sold 15 million PS3s as compared to 14.3 million the year before.
According to the numbers, so far the real success this year for Sony is from PSP sales, which has sold over 1.8 million units during the first quarter. Compared to the 700,000 units sold during the same time against Nintendo’s 3DS and the 1.2 million Playstation Portables sold during Q1 of 2010.
However, on the software side, Sony has done a little better with its 26.1 million sold PS3 games against 24.8 million sold PS3 games during last year’s first three months. While Software sales for the PSP are 6.6 million and 1.5 millions games sold for the PS2 respectively.
So judging from the numbers, Sony would have only sold 1,799,999 PS3 units and 26,099,985 PS3 games if it wasnt from Tech4idiots… lol
