    Sony Sells 440,000 PS3 Slim Systems During Thanksgiving Week

    Sony's PlayStation 3 Slim entertainment system seems to be picking up the pace this holiday season, as VentureBeat.com (linked above) reports that 440,000 PS3 consoles were sold during Thanksgiving Week this year.

    It appears Sony's Blu-ray Movie, PS3 Slim Bundle and HD Entertainment promotional campaigns are paying off indeed.

    To quote from SCEA's Sr. Director of Corporate Communications and Social Media Patrick Seybold:

    "The 2009 holiday season got off to an amazing start for PlayStation, with all key retailers showing a significant increase for PS3, PSP and key holiday titles over Black Friday and the holiday weekend.

    PlayStation 3 demand was at an all time high with the system selling more than 440,000 units for the week ending 11/29/09."

    Holly crap

    Nearly a have million?!Thats reall great. For me this is another proof of that the success of a console depends on the price and quality not on being able to boot hb or anything else.

    WoW, that is some number. PS3 is certainly picking up. I hope it keeps running the show coz we need more players online.

    That just proves the only reason why PS3 sales were low was because of the price. but the slim makes up for that and this weeks shown exactly how much sony and playstation are still very very strong competitors and are not falling behind at all!

    Everything is relative. I still think it won't match the ps2 in sales performance and longevity but its still a good showing by sony. We of course dont see what the 360 or wii sold during the same period.

    How complicated are the hacks? The 360 has been hacked forever and plagued with defects... its screwed as far as I'm concerned.

    Well I think its because it is able to play blu-ray, and that it looks awesome in any livingroom, so more grown-ups buy it, because it doesn't wreck their livingrooms.
