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).

"So the Wii, still to this day, continues to obliterate the other consoles in volume sales. "

I wouldnt say that. 1.5 to 1 is not obliterate. 5 to 1 like Android over IOS is "obliterating". LOL

You really love bragging about all of those disposable low end Android phones being sold to the poor and the third world, don't you? ;)

Over half of mobile traffic, mobile ad revenue, and mobile app downloads are still on the iOS side, despite the difference. Is that big a gap in OS marketshare really substantial when most of it is on the low end?

Its like bragging about how huge Windows is when the bulk of installations are XP running on $400 econoboxes in data entry offices and call centers. I think Windows is great but I don't delude myself into thinking that most people are running fast rigs like I am.
