    General games PS3, PS2 and PSP Sales Figures Paint a stuttering picture for Sonys Consoles

    Sony's latest financial results reveal that worldwide sales of PlayStation 3 now stand at 38.1 million units, following 2.4 million sales of the console in the company's first quarter, which ended 30th June 2010.

    Microsoft announced a few days ago that Xbox 360 has shipped 41.7 million units worldwide, although it has had a year longer on the market than its main competitor.

    2.4 million sales of PS3 in Q1 represents a 118 per cent increase on last year's 1.1 million sales, although things weren't so rosy for the PSP, sales of which declined slightly to 1.2 million compared to 1.3 million in the same period of 2009.

    The mighty PS2, meanwhile, sold a sterling 1.6 million units.

    Money-wise, the Networked Products & Services division, of which games is a component, saw sales rise 32.4 per cent to 325 billion yen, of which games contributed 142 billion yen and PCs the rest.

    There are more functioning PS3's in existence than Xbox 360's, so therefore the almost four million gap between the two is even less (possibly one million).

    With the Xbox 360 now promoting a face lift, I would like to see how well the system compares to the PS3 in the following five months until Christmas, into how much bigger the gap will become, or if it will close and eventually allow SONY the pass.
