PS3 Sales Reach 30 Million In PAL Regions

While the Xbox 360 may be king in North America, a large portion of the rest of the world prefers the PlayStation 3. In fact, SCEE announced earlier today that Sony's HD console has sold a whopping 30 million units in Europe and PAL territories. 

Jim Ryan, Sony Computer Entertainment Europe's CEO, shared the news, saying:

This is a major milestone for us and clearly shows just how popular the PlayStation brand and products are within Europe and the PAL territories. We are really pleased with the success of the PS3 system over the last six years, and are committed to continuing our support of the platform with high quality products and titles that are of the caliber that PlayStation fans have come to expect.

With total worldwide sales around 70 million, this means that nearly half of all the console's sales can be attributed to purchases in this region. So while Sony's situation in North America may not look all too promising, over in Europe it is quite a different story.
