So we just reported (minutes ago!) that HD DVD was crowing about it’s increase in player sales. Now it seems like Blu-ray is giving them a run for their PR money—by putting the word out that PlayStation 3 players have jumped almost 300 percent.
Game News says that the PlayStation brand in general enjoyed a 178 percent increased over Thanksgiving week. Over the past year, sales are up 245 percent.
The big number, however, is that PS3 sales are up 298 percent since November 2. Much of that success comes from the new $499 price tag (for 80GB), as well as the $399 40GB model. There are also a slew of hot new games, such as “Guitar Hero III” and exclusive titles like “Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune.”
With the Wii nowhere to be found, the PS3 could get an even bigger boost. Which is on your holiday wish list?
