1.2 million PS3s sold since Black Friday

Sony Computer Entertainment announced today that they had sold over 3.9 million units of PlayStation hardware in North America since Black Friday. So that’s from November 23rd till December 31, 2007. Out of 3.9 million the PlayStation 2 sold over 1.3 million units, the PlayStation Portable over 1.4 million units, and the PlayStation 3 over 1.2 million units. Keep in mind that these numbers are North America only.

"The PlayStation brand ended the year in a very strong position and clearly indicates more positive momentum going into 2008. We are particularly pleased to have sold through 1.2 million units of PS3 during the holiday selling season," said Jack Tretton, president and CEO, SCEA. "The strong PS3 sales also further establish Blu-ray’s dominant position as the high-definition medium of choice for games and movies. Consumers are clearly responding to the expanding multimedia capabilities and a great line-up of over 200 games."

This is it for PlayStation for now, probably more news to come from CES as the Sony press conference approaches. Stay tuned!
