PlayStation 3 Hits 80 Million In Worldwide Shipments


Global shipments of PlayStation 3 have reached over 80 million units since its 2006 release, Sony have announced. That sales figure is as of November 2nd, 2013.


Currently in its seventh year on the market, PlayStation 3 will soon be joined by the PlayStation 4, which is set to launch later this month in North America and Europe.


Despite the PS4 launch, however, Sony are continuing to release first-party PlayStation 3 games such as Gran Turismo 6, which will be available on December 6th.
