PlayStation 3 Install Base Nearing 52 Million Strong

by William Schwartz


Sony dropped their latest sales figures for the PlayStation 3 at their TGS Press Conference, and the company is approaching the 52 Million units sold mark.

Sony notes that PlayStation 3 sales make up nearly %50 of all consoles sold in the last year, with PS3 software representing 46% of the overall market worldwide.

These numbers paint a much better picture than the figures that are released by the NPD Group each month.  It certainly doesn’t help that Sony remains very secretive of their sales figures each month for their North American figures.   The PSP handheld total sales figures were revealed as well, with the device racking up almost 72 million sales since launch.  With the recent price cuts and strong content headed to the console this fall, these global numbers are expected to rise in this all-important holiday season.

Resistance 3 recently kicked off the fall for the PlayStation 3 and has been getting great reviews, with many calling it Insomniacs best work in the franchise.
