PlayStation 3 PS3 Slim

Sony Computer Entertainment Inc. group CEO Kaz Hirai claimed that the company has sold one-million PlayStation 3 Slim systems in three weeks. He delivered this info during his Tokyo Game Show 2009 keynote address. As many of you remember, the console went on sale at the very end of August. With the new design attracting some attention and the new $299 price point generating a lot of buzz, Sony knew that the Slim would sell like potato pancakes.

Unfortunately, Hirai only gave the worldwide sales figure. It would have been terribly interesting to see how the Slim performed region by region. The PlayStation 3 is in third place, behind that Nintendo Wii and Xbox 360, in both North America and Europe. While the new price point should help Sony close the gap, experts are divided on whether Sony can catch up to Microsoft. Some believe that it has a good chance, while others believe that the it's too late for the PS3.

What do you think of Sony selling one-million PS3 Slims in three weeks? Is it an impressive feat? Less than you thought it would be? Or just a meaningless number?
