Sony Sells 80 Million PS3s
Filed under: PS3, PS4, SONY


Console manufacturer Sony revealed that it has shifted over 80 million PlayStation 3 consoles across the globe since the system's launch back on November 11, 2006.

At the same time, over one million PlayStation 4 consoles were pre-ordered, hence Sony is feeling pretty confident about the launch of its next-generation system, while still enjoying the success of their current-gen platform.

In October this year, Microsoft also confirmed that 80 million of their Xbox 360 console were sold worldwide since they released the system during November 2005.

Now, I was always inclined to thin that some of the best gaming experiences in my life were on my PC and yet it's hard to deny how many awesome titles I played on the Xbox 360 over the years. My only regret now is that I haven't played The Last of Us yet and I probably never will because I'm not gonna buy a PS3 just because of one game (okay, two - Uncharted 1, 2 and 3... so that's four then).

80,000,000 x (avg.) $250 = $20,000,000,000!!!

I came to the console scene rather late (actually i bought my ps3 earlier this year). I looked at the list of exclusives and realized that most xbox360 games i already owned on the PC so I bought a ps3 instead and these games:

Heavenly Sword
God of War 3
Red Dead Redemption
Killzone 1 and 2
Little Big Planet
Final Fantasy X13
Uncharted 1, 2 and 3
Infamous 1 and 2
Metal Gear Solid 4
Ratchet and Clank (3 titles)
Heavy Rain
Atelier (2 titles)
Disgaea 4
Journey

As you can see I like platformers, some shooting, some rpgs. They were all cheap games cause they were used so I spent, including the console, about 500$. A fair price for all that entertainment and it had to be the ps3 because those were all exclusive (apart from a couple).

Beyond 2 souls and the last of us are yet to be added to that list.

I was unable to put together such a great list of exclusive games for the xbox360 (i dislike racing games otherwise there would be a couple of good titles).

Future Shop (in Canada) took 2 months to fix my computer (replace bad RAM). I have strongly negative feelings toward that store.

In unrelated news, did you know that Future Shop has two weeks return policy on things like PS3?
