Sony has reached a milestone in its European and PAL markets. It has managed to sell over 30 million units of the PS3 console since its launch in 2007.
This figure was reached as of 17th December 2012. Unlike in Japan and North America, the PS3 was introduced in March 2007 instead of November 2006.
“This is a major milestone for us and clearly shows just how popular the PlayStation brand and products are within Europe and the PAL territories”, said Jim Ryan, President and CEO of SCEE. “We are really pleased with the success of the PS3 system over the last six years, and are committed to continuing our support of the platform with high quality products and titles that are of the caliber that PlayStation fans have come to expect.”
According to Joystiq, 5 million of the PS3 consoles were sold in the UK alone.
