I don’t keep up with hardware sales figures a great deal, but some Sony-related facts caught my eye today.

It’s all about the continuing success of the PlayStation 2. Or, if you prefer, the under-performance of the PlayStation 3 and PSP.

Two salient PS2 facts: it was the only one to increase annual unit sales in the year to 30th June 2009; and more significantly, it outsold the other two. Obviously it’s cheaper, but it’s pretty surprising nonetheless.

    How well was the Snes/Megadrive selling in 2000? It’s quite impressive really…

    I think the Mega Drive was out selling the Saturn after it was first released.
