Sony Computer Entertainment America (SCEA) has issued an official statement detailing North American hardware sales figures for the company’s PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Portable systems for the month of October.
The firm noted a particularly prosperous month, with the PlayStation brand generating a 39% increase in retail spending on a year-on-year basis. PS3 sales reached 120,000 during October, with sales jumping 192% over the last fortnight thanks to the release of the 40GB model, as touched on yesterday.
PSP also continued to perform strongly, with 286,000 units sold during the same period, generating a year-on-year increase of 120% thanks to the recent release of the PSP Slim and Lite edition.
“And with 24 first and third-party software titles being released this holiday season, such as SOCOM: U.S. Navy SEALs Tactical Strike and Final Fantasy Tactics: The War of The Lions, as well as new spots for the wildly popular "Dude, get your own" campaign, the PSP will undoubtedly continue to gain momentum through the coming months”, the company stated.
