SCEA: December Was PS3 And PSN's Best Month Ever


Via Kotaku:

The holidays were kind to the PlayStation Family, with the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Network bringing in more sales than ever before. The previously announced 1.7 million PS3s sold during the holidays aren't the only holiday milestone Sony's bragging about..

A statement from Patrick Seybold, Sony Computer Entertainment America's senior director of corporate communications and social media, notes that December 2009 was "the single highest selling month for PS3 hardware and software since its launch in the US," boasting a 90% increase in hardware sales, a 60% in software from the previous December.

And in terms of percentages that also confuse, the PlayStation Network had its "single highest revenue month, jumping 155% from December 2008 in North America." Sony says that Final Fantasy VIII was the most downloaded game of the month, with Q-Games' PixelJunk Shooter scoring the second place spot.

With NPD Group's monthly U.S. sales report due tomorrow, we're sure to have better comparisons for you so that you may more accurately fight the console war on each monolithic corporation's behalf.

What does this mean? It means the PSN, which includes Home is making money. Lots of money. What does it mean for you? It means that they have the monetary resources to invest into Home. This includes, but isn't limited to: Fixing bugs. Hiring better staff. (Or at least some good staff on top of the bad ones they have) Obtaining more talented developers. List goes on for miles. Make sure to let them know we are aware of their income.

  1. I have always wondered why one can never actually find any actual numbers on how much money Home is making. Maybe Home-Watch can be tasked with the possibly impossible task of digging up some numbers on how much Home really pulls in. GL
