is finally getting the sort of sales it needs from its PS3 games console.
According to a press release, sales of the PS3 totalled 1.2 million in North America during the holiday season. The move had a knock on effect on the sales of the company's Blu-ray video format.
Sony said that 1.4 million PlayStation Portables were sold in North America between Nov. 23 and Dec. 31, the holiday shopping period. Including sales of 1.3 million for PlayStation 2, PS3's predecessor, retail sales of the three PlayStation machines reached more than 3.9 million in North America during the holiday period.
So far, Nintendo has not commented on its Christmas sales figures, and we already wrote about XboX 360 holiday sales here
