Managing director of Sony Australia, Michael Ephraim, is taunting the competition by claiming since its launch on March 23rd, the PS3 has been the best selling next-gen console week after week (excluding last week). It has sold 50,000 units since launch and triumphantly guffaws at Nintendo's paltry 100,000 units sold since the beginning of December 2006. Can you find our sarcasm?
We're not telling Sony to "shhh" or anything, as the numbers do seem to support their claim on a weekly basis. Since the PS3 launched (and many people may have already picked up a Wii by then), it has been selling the best of the three down under. We just wonder if the system will continue selling as it is there and if the upcoming end to the game draught will boost sales significantly. Even if the console is being marketed as a Blu-ray player in certain stores.
