In the three weeks since launching the new slim model PlayStation 3, Sony has sold over one million units.

That's according to numbers from Sony Japan, following the introduction of a new model and a lower asking price in all major regions.

"The new PS3 has been doing very well, and one of the reasons for this is the price," said SCE president Kaz Hirai at the Tokyo Game Show today. "As a system in the living room, we have managed to realise this price without making any changes to what is good about it."

The 120GB model now retails for USD 299 in the US, EUR 299 across Europe, GBP 249 in the UK and 29,980 in Japan.
