More news has recently flown in from London, during the ongoing PlayStation Day event. Sony Computer Entertainment Europe head David Reeves was proud to announce the success of their PlayStation 3 next-gen console over their closest rival, Microsoft‘s Xbox 360.
The numbers Sony has compiled clearly show that the PS3 has already sold over five million units in the region and has been enjoying a lead over the Microsoft next-gen console since last October.
Despite the 18-month head start the Xbox 360 had over the PS3, Reeves was happy to announce that they were finally making considerable headway against their rival. UK sales alone have amounted to over one million units over the past month.
