MCV reports European tracking firm Chart Track informed them that the PS3 has seen a 178% increase in sales recently. They reached this conclusion calculating the "week-on-week PS3 hardware sales
" following the introduction of the 60GB bundle
and the new 40GB unit. It sounds like some fancy math is going on there, but we'll take any good news on the PS3 at this point.
Chart Track says the introduction of the 40GB PS3
created the third largest hardware sales week for the system behind the console's first two weeks on sale. Software sales also increased as Resistance: Fall of Man
jumped the charts from #22 to #8. Heavenly Sword
also saw increases. It appears Sony is finally getting the PS3 into a price range consumers are comfortable with.
