Australian PS3 outsold 360 by 45% in Q1, says Sony

Australia – the Mad Max hinterland of the global gaming hardware war – is PlayStation 3-crazy according to Sony, which today claimed PS3 has outsold Xbox 360 by 45 percent in the first quarter this year.

“I can tell you in the first quarter of 2008 we have outsold Xbox 360 by around 45 percent,” SCE Australia head Michael Ephraim told PALGN.

“That is not including the Bravia deal, which moved through around 30,000 units, so if you add the Bravia deal to our global sales we have now, in the first quarter of 2008 we have outsold the Xbox 360 by 2:1.”

The site’s promising a full interview with Ephraim tomorrow, so expect more Australian figure madness later this week.

    I wish they’d run that Bravia deal in the UK…

    I’ve got a Bravia. It’s fine, and it didn’t cost the earth. That’s why I bought it, in fact.

    Odd turn of discussion. The high end ones are good, but overpriced compared to comparable models from other companies. Brand sells as always though.

    Well worth picking up one of the previously high end models after a couple of years of price cuts though. =)
