It also sold 15 million PlayStation Move units

Sony announced two sales milestones today that affect both its PlayStation 3 gaming console and its PlayStation Move motion controller.

According to Sony, it has sold 70 million PlayStation 3 units globally as of November 4, 2012. This is the cumulative number since its launch in 2006.

Additionally, Sony has sold 15 million PlayStation Move motion controllers globally as of November 11, 2012 since its launch in 2010.

Back in September of this year, it was announced that Sony planned to release a thinner PS3 starting at $270. The latest PS3 console will be available in either 250GB and 500GB bundles. The 250GB bundle will come in either black or white and will have "Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception" Game of the Year Edition included. The price tag is set at $269.99. For those more interested in the 500GB model, it will come in black only alongside the "Assassin's Creed III" release.

Sony also made huge changes to the Trophies section on the PS3 via a system software update (Version 4.30) in October.

The Japanese electronics maker has had some financial trouble in recent years due to issues like a sinking TV division, but new Sony CEO Kazuo Hirai is leading a major restructuring plan for the company that includes focusing on gaming as one of the major three pillars (the other two are digital imaging and mobile).

I mean who in their sane mind will pick PS3 over XBox 360 that's to be sold for $150 in Walmart these holidays? $150 is dirt cheap for 360 IMHO. Considering all it can do besides playing 3D games. Also don't forget about Halo 4!

I would. I have two PS3s that I use all the time for gaming and watching Blu-rays. I sold my only Xbox 360 about half a year ago after it sat unused for several months. IMHO, Xbox 360 has no good exclusive titles while the PS3 does ( Resistance series is way better than Halo).
