Edité par LeTho le 11/06/2007 The PS3 continues to sell very well in PAL territories, as SCEE President and CEO David Reeves revealed that console sales just broke 1 million a few days back. Reeves stated that the milestone was achieved nine and a half weeks faster than its predecessors. With such a hefty price, it could be safe to assume that where Sony is selling well, there's bound to be people with high incomes. "The Middle East and Russia are quite lucrative markets, with a lot of wealthy people there." Reeves went on with: In terms of software, we've sold in about two million pieces of first party software. And the big ones are Resistance: Fall of Man at about 600,000 units and Motorstorm at just over the 500,000 mark. We're obviously very happy that these two new IPs have done so well. Reeves proudly announced, "I think the analysts out there will realise it's faster than our brothers and sisters in the competitive world as well." That's right, they're claiming a lead in the console arena. About online service, "I don't feel competing with Xbox Live; we feel we're in a different stadium. And with the introduction of Home at Christmas, we're going in a completely different direction with something very entertaining. We don't have our eyes on the competition in any way." They don't want competition, definitely not. Maybe they don't mind losing exclusives neither? Whatever Reeves is thinking, let's wish PS3 the best of luck. ( Petite traduction pour ceux qui ne savent pas lire l'anglais. ) La PlayStation 3 continue de se vendre a merveille ! En effet, elle a dépassé le cap du million d'unités vendues en Europe et dans l'ensemble des territoires de la zone PAL, et ce depuis quelques jours. C'est du moins ce qu'affirme David Reeves, le Président de Sony Europe, qui précise à MCV UK que le seuil du million a été franchi en l'espace de neuf semaines et demi, depuis le lancement de la machine le 23 mars dernier. "Ce fut plus rapide que la PS2 et la PSone. Et je pense que les analystes ici ou là réaliseront que ce fut plus rapide que la concurrence".
