Sony Ignores PS3’s Sales Stumble

May 15, 2009 Written by Michael Gruver


For the month of April, Sony’s PS3 only sold 127,000 units for North America. Sony ignored the poor performance completely by just concentrating in the future of PS3. Here’s what Patrick Seybold, Sony’s US comms boss said in regards to the NPD report:

“We’re revving up the new fiscal year with a broad tent of content and services across our platforms with envelope-pushing PS3 games like inFAMOUS, MAG, and Uncharted 2: Among Thieves”

“We often hear from our customers that they’re surprised by everything the PS3 does in addition to what they purchased the device for – including features like DLNA, free access to Wi-Fi and internet browser In some ways, this serves as a reminder that there’s more we can do to relay the full breadth and power of the PS3.”

“We know our consumers have varying entertainment lifestyles from the Blu-ray movie fanatic to photo enthusiast, so we’ve outlined our most aggressive marketing plans to help showcase this tremendous value proposition to all our consumers.”

“We’ve got a proven history in delivering the best entertainment experience and there is no doubt the PlayStation brand is staged for another big year.”
