Well look at that: not only is the PS3 Slim a big success over in Japan, but it’s also doing pretty damn well here in the U.S. Sales were up some 300 percent in at Sony’s “top retailers,” comparing the the week it launched to the previous week.
And while a video game console is usually only as good as its latest hit (not necessarily true with the PS3, since it has a Blu-ray player), Sony also noted that the big titles people are looking forward to are: Final Fantasy XIII, God of War III, Assassin’s Creed II, Gran Turismo 5, and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. All sequels, you may have noticed.
For the thousandth time: how different things would be today had Sony launched the PS3 Slim back in 2006!
