Europe: PS3 Outsells 360


Posted May 6, 2008 - By Stephen Johnson

According to Sony boss David Reeves, the PlayStation 3 is outselling the 360...at least in Europe.

"I am delighted to be able announce today that we have sold more PlayStation 3s throughout Europe than Xbox 360 - even though they launched sixteen months before PS3," he said.

Reeves says the company has sold 5 million PS3s in Europe already, meaning sales are faster than the PS2's sales, and that even given how much more excpensive the console is.

Reeves said 12 million PSPs and 48 million PS2s have been sold in Europe. 

"These numbers are a testament to the strength of the PlayStation brand throughout our region, the ever-increasing number of titles being launched, the rich content on offer and its appeal to different demographics and cultures," Reevs said.
