PS3 Premiers in Japan: The Launch Numbers

November 12, 2006

Well it seems that the PS3 has sold out in Japan. 32,000 of the 20 GB models and 51,000 of the 60 GB models have been sold. The most popular game was Ridge Racer 7 (27,000), followed by Gundam (20,000), Resistance (16,000) and Sega Golf Club (3,000). Sony is currently losing an estimated $300 US on every 20 GB version of the PS3. It will be interesting to see how the US launch goes.
