Lol, well that is kind of the point of the site (to get the data right to the best of our ability)

The figures are quite impressive considering its the most expensive console and some countries in Europe have a very low GDP, like portugal, which still managed to sell 90% of it's share of consoles.

Where does the Scandinavia number from? I thought that only 40,000 consoles were shipped to Scandinavia: http://www.n4g.com/industrynews/News-28715.aspx

I don't belive those numbers. Since Sony Australia announced that EB got 75% of PS3 allocated to them (12,000 units) therefore another 25% is 4,000 units so a total of 16,000 units shipped to aus. Guess what there is still a shitload of PS3s left in stores.



Even if Sony fudged the numbers a little it's still over 500k from "other" regions, and given bad press about things such as price and limited backwards compatability that's pretty darn good.

Paraphrashing someone else from this forum, saying that the "PS3 sold well despite its price" is the same as saying "the PS3 didn't sell very well due to its price". Anyway, that was Sony's bet to make an expensive console with mandatory Blu-Ray, let's see how it works for them...
