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.
