You have to hand it to Sony for probably the most impressive in-generation turnaround in video game history. It took many years (and several billion dollars) but they did turn it around sales wise.


Those game figures are a little misleading though. Sony counts the same game across multiple territories as separate games. I know many other publishers do this as well but it's very confusing when you compare them with publishers that don't.
