Sony's sales are looking pretty damn good this week, and you know what I have to say to that? Hell Yeah! Only three days after the launch of the PSP Go (and three weeks after Jon officially won't get one), sales skyrocketed 300% week over week, according to Sony Computer Entertainment America.
SCEA corporate communications director, Patrick Seybold, stated,
The launch of PSP Go has generated strong consumer interest in the overall PSP platform and the PlayStation Network's digital content offering.
North American PlayStation Network revenue has also shown a "significant increase," thanks to the PSP Go. According to Sony, game downloads purchased from the PlayStation Store for the PSP have sailed a whopping 200% in the area.
Not only is the United States benefiting from the PSP Go launch, but also the UK has seen revenue from the increased sales. Up 120%, Sony has declared that it is "in line with expectations."
Thanks to Gran Turismo and Fifa 2010, the PSP-3000 sales also increased in the region. Sony is starting to measure up to the competition, "With several blockbuster games launching digitally and on UMD in the coming weeks -- from LittleBigPlanet to Assassin's Creed Bloodlines -- we expect this momentum to continue and look forward to a strong holiday season for both the PSP Go and PSP-3000," according to Seybold.
