December 1, 2009 // 1:10 am - Sony's PlayStation 3 Slim entertainment system seems to be picking up the pace this holiday season, as (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."

With the holidays sneaking up on us and the advertising of the price drop because of the slim. With Playstation's pure awesomeness because it is the console to beat the snot out of all consoles with its "more than just gaming" ability (blu-ray)

Many are interested in the blu-ray playing ability. It's a hell of a deal to get a gaming console and blu-ray player in one. All the daddies are convincing the mommies that this isn't just a gaming console. Mommy and Daddy can watch their porn in high-def while little Timmy is sleeping. Or Daddy can get up and play some COD while little mommy is sleeping.

But can watch movies in high def and I can play games!! Merry Christmas to him/her and you!!

Hahaha thats a really great and good comparison

Some one remember on this vid with the sexy girl representing the Wii and the fath One representing the PS3?

Would be great to redo this vid with a new slim and sexy girl representing the PS3

Only bad would be that the Wii will lead in sales

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.

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

Sure we can see to end of Week with weekly sales.Im really horny about this week and the sales

And about the PS2 could be but let us see first how long this gen really will be active.

Maybe its over with next year?!

Also im interested in if the x360 sales go up after releasing the new hack or not.

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.

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!

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