NPD: PS3 sales grow once again

Though the PS3 continued to lag behind Xbox 360 in both the April and May markets in the US, Sony’s machine is on a remarkable run that has seen it post its ninth and tenth consecutive months of year-on-year sales growth in North America.

Since May 2009 the PS3 has seen hardware sales grow 18 per cent and software sales jumped by an impressive 58 per cent.

While tight inventory had an impact on sales numbers in recent months, we are now beginning to experience greater availability of product and are looking forward to this fall’s most anticipated launch, PlayStation Move,” SCEA’s Patrick Seybold stated.

When PlayStation Move launches consumers will have access to a compelling line-up of motion-control titles that will appeal to casual and core gamers and, in the months that follow, a new line-up of AAA hardware sellers previewed at E3 will arrive on PS3 including Gran Turismo 5, Killzone 3, Twisted Metal and inFAMOUS 2.”
