PlayStation 3 Worldwide Sales Hit 70 Million

Sony has announced today that the company has reached a new sales milestone with the PlayStation 3.

Since the console launched back in 2006, over 70 million units have been sold worldwide, and as of November 11th, over 15 million PlayStation Move controllers have been sold. On the software front, sales clock in at 595 million worldwide. Not too shabby if you ask me.

Interestingly enough, just last month Microsoft made a similar announcement regarding the Xbox 360, touting the fact that console sales had surpassed the 70 million mark. It looks like Sony's only inches behind the competition at this point.

Will they find a way to pull ahead, or are they destined to come in third place this generation? Let us know what you think in the comments below.
