That's an increase of 5.63 million systems from the previous fiscal year. (Note: Fiscal 2007 was much shorter for PS3, due to its November launch.) Sony's first year in this generation was admittedly lackluster, with the company receiving a lot of flak from the hardcore gaming community. Since then, a number of high-profile releases have earned PS3 a better portion of gamer mindshare.

Software sales also experienced a tremendous boom, jumping from the miniscule 13.3 million to 57.9 million. Obviously, with more systems, more games, and more time, sales of software will experience quite a boon. As good as these numbers are, PS3 is still in infancy -- we can't wait to see how well it does in the next 12 months.
