A SCEA executive has said sales of PS3 were up by more than 130pc during the festive period. "We've had a solid holiday season and have delivered consistent growth throughout this year," said sales vice president Ian Jackson, in a statement to CNET. As the CNET article points out, PS3 sales were down by 18.8 pc for Nov 2008 compared to the same month a year previously. But Sony blamed "an abnormally strong month due to a price cut (with) the introduction of the 40GB PS3".
