This Little Baby Has Worked Wonders For Sony In The Latter Half Of The Year.

According to executive vice president Tony Bartel, momentum for the system has remained strong since the price cut in early September. Usually price cuts cause a strong spike in sales, before dropping away. Sounds like the Playstation 3 is bucking that trend.

Bartel confirmed to IndustryGamers that there was a huge "surge" after the price drop announcement, and sales have remained strong right the way through October. Whether the Playstation 3 can stay above the Wii and XBOX 360 for the month, time will tell.
