SCEA’s Jack Tretton’s told Forbes that Sony’s PS3 Slim gamble has paid off, with the console revamp resulting in “sky-rocketing sales… We couldn’t be happier with the numbers we’re seeing.”

Tretton added that he sees Sony as a greater risk-taker than Nintendo.

“We don’t have unlimited money, we cater to a more mass market audience, we’re willing to take a little bit more risk than a competitor like Nintendo,” he added.
