NPD results for Sony’s performance in February show that the PS3 has increased in sales 120% in comparison to last year. In addition to this huge jump in performance, the PSP also saw a 38% increase in sales.
I’d attribute much of this increase in sales for the PS3 to the recent announcement of the failure of HD-DVD. Like the PS2, the PS3 is a (fairly) affordable Blu-Ray player.
Looks like I’ll need to pick one up, there’s been a rumored price drop for a bit, that’s all I’m waiting for.
