SCEA even mentioned that January 2007 is in fact a record month for the PlayStation business. Hardware and software sales revenue for PS3, PSP, and PS2 in North America alone totalled US$ 550 million. SCEA added,
Although we still saw supply constraints at retail for PS3, we did sell a strong 243,554 according to NPD data. Tie ratios for PS3 have improved by 80% since launch and should continue to climb with the release of the much anticipated MotorStorm from SCEA and Virtua Fighter 5 from Sega.
Aside from the impressive showing by the console, SCEA pointed out as well that good things are headed towards PSP's way:
PSP had a very good January, with hardware sales up 20% year over year, selling 210,719. PSP is closing the gap on the leading competitor, off just over 10% in total sales for the month. PSP software sales should see a boost as well this month, with the release of the critically-acclaimed Ratchet and Clank: Size Matters.
Lastly, SCEA promised fans that it will shift its focus on marketing from here on, especially now that supply levels are stabilizing.
