Watch and learn people. Here’s how you turn “coming dead last” into something that resembles a success of sorts. In November’s NPD figures, all three of Sony’s platforms occupied the bottom three rungs of the hardware ladder. But Sony refused to acknowledge any sort of failure, issuing a statement saying that combined PlayStation sales were up 160% from October, that the PS3 saw a 285% spike in sales over the previous month and that their total software revenue for the month was up 128%. Also highlighted was the fact three PS3 games made the month’s top 10 in sales.
We could also do some simple addition for you and tell you how the DS alone outsold all three of Sony’s platforms, but hey, we wouldn’t want to show up Sony’s fine PR work.
