September 6, 2009 Written by Richard Allen


Americans have taken to the PS3 Slim. Perhaps the $299 price is the magic number to finally get the PlayStation 3 into some new homes. Of course those of us that are informed are looking forward to some of the great titles promised this year.

VGChartz is reporting some impressive first week sales figures. The week before the PS3 Slim was introduced sales were 37,167. The first week of the Slim moved 75,931 PlayStation 3 systems. This is a 104% increase in performance and as the chart indicates below, the PlayStation 3 outsold every other home console in the same week.
