Sony shipped 30 millions PS2 worldwide!

Sony shippped 30 millions PS2 worldwide! It really looks like the "growth" rate of PS2 is higher than the other two. It was only 8 millions in January and now it is already 11 millions?

Just wondering how many did Microsoft and Nintendo ship?

The PSx sold around 75 million units world wide(and is still selling). Looks like the PS2 might match the sales, at this rate.

...Check the MagicBox charts for the other systems. Too lazy to do it now.

?

The PSX is pretty cheap now. And some people might just be buying it as a collecters item or something. They're going to be worth something one day.

New Model

And don't forget the new model for the PSOne that came out. Thats probably helping sales also. It also came out with a LCD screen, so you can play it on the road. And it's more portable now.

Sony has successfully turned PSone to a kids machine, I noticed many parents are choosing PSone for their kids in local game shops, because there are a lot of cheap and educational games available for the system.

Maybe people are still buying the PSOne because it's protable and you can get a screen with it.

Well what Iori said is true ...
so maybe that's one reason why the psone is still selling well !!And now it's portiable so that's another good reason!!!It's great to hear that because alot of people tought that sony will totaly abandon the PSX and that didn't really happend they are still making things for the PSX
(I don't know if sony itself) but i'm sure there's some other companies out there that's devolping games for the psx (not as many as it used to be )
but i think it's great to hear that !!!!

Sony is making one more game (that I know of) called C-12:Final Resistance. It was already released in Europe, but it's just coming to the US now

PSx Games

The Italion Job also just came out(it was out in Europe for a while). It's a game based on the movie by the same name, and is published by Rockstar.

Theres also that one game by Bandai in Japan. It's in the top 5, so thats helping the sale also.

BIG DIFFERENCE!!

Maybe i'm wrong but what we have here is a big difference between Sony and Nintendo right ??
I mean when the n64 came out you coulda as well throw your SNES away !!But Sony is still doing things for the psx ..wich probably explain the huge sales numbers... right ??..
