Germany 100



Wow my predictions of 600,000 were right on. I knew it wouldn't sell out. So lets see in April for the real worldwide comparisons.

Heise.de reported on behalf of an official Sony representative that these 100.000 where shipped to the German language area including Austria and Swiss, not just Germany. I suspect that the 72k ioi allocated to Germany alone are actually the sales of this area.

Yes, that's probably right. And I must admit that I am still surprised about these low numbers. If I am not mistaken Germany was the biggest PS-2 market in Europe. But the high price changes everything.



This comes from MCVUK PS3 notches up €400 million across Europe 11:15, Mar 30th 2007 by Lisa Foster David Reeves reveals to MCV the full PS3 launch weekend sales figures across Europe. 600,000 PS3s were sold across PAL territories, putting a staggering €400 million through retail in a spectacular opening weekend. The news comes on the back of ChartTrack confirming that in the UK, the next generation Sony machine has notched up 165,000 sales, making it the fastest-selling home console in history. As expected, the UK was the number one PAL territory – but SCEE president David Reeves hailed the performance of PS3 in other markets, too. “France did very well,” he told MCV. “Sales were around half of the UK, with Spain and Portugal slightly behind that. Germany, too, saw strong sales of around the 50-60,000 mark." “We saw around Euro 400 million sales going through retail across PAL territories in two days; that’s certainly a big figure, which we’re very proud of.” Sony also confirmed to MCV that around 150,000 consumers had registered with the PS3 Network during the two days. This seems to be more or less in line with the numbers ioi posted, although Germany is a bit lower and Spain and Portugal seem to be taken together in this article.
