Sony Price Cut Doubles PS3 Sales

Sony’s lackluster PlayStation 3 sales more than doubled recently thanks to the introduction of the new 40GB model and a $100 price cut on the 80GB model.

Well, it is only one week’s data, but sales went from about 40,000 units a week to more than 100,000. Still, it is going to have to do better than that to catch up to the Xbox 360 and Nintendo’s Wii (which have shipped 11.6 million and 9.3 million consoles, respectively, compared to just 5 million for the PS3). It does come with a Blue-ray drive, though.
