Sony Black Friday sales breakdown

#1
Sony sold over 525,000 PlayStation 3s and 160,000 PS Vitas in North America during the week of Black Friday (Nov. 18-24), it has announced.

PlayStation 3 Black Friday bundle sales increased 15 percent, and total PS3 sales including hardware, software, and peripherals grew 9 percent compared to last year.

“We’re very pleased with the Black Friday sales results, especially the incredible reception for the PS3 and PS Vita bundles. The demand was very strong which quickly depleted our inventory across retailers nationwide,” said Jack Tretton, President and CEO of Sony Computer Entertainment America. “The PlayStation brand generated significant revenue and year-over-year growth at retail because of our focus on what gamers love most in combining amazing hardware with great games and digital entertainment.”

Good numbers for both (well, vita numbers are good, not fantastic, but a big step up from where they were before), looks like I was close when I predicted 500k+ for PS3 in NA during the shopping weekend.

They really should drop Vita to $200 bundles sometime soon. Much sweeter price point.

PS3 # does not surprise me, but the Vita # does....I am surprised it sold over 100k to be honest......people must of fell for the Block Ops for Vita "being like the console experience"....sucks for them.

Considering some of those deals, it's a disappointing Vita number, but at least they've got 160k more Vitas out in the wild. That's not entirely a bad thing, and could have been much worse.

Ok numbers for both PS3 and vita. I think that's the closest the vita will ever get to the 3DS (160k to 250k)
Yep, that's a victory for Sony, but they also have to be seriously considering giving a permanent price drop at this point. They CAN compete with the 3DS if the system is competitively priced, that's obvious.

i think people "fell for" the ridiculously great value bundle amazon offered. I sure did. Thing is awesome.
