NPD: PlayStation 3 hits tenth month of consecutive growth

Supply issues in the US beginning to improve, says SCEA

Sony's PlayStation 3 enjoyed its tenth month of consecutive growth in May, according to US data from Sony.

Hardware sales were up 18 per cent compared to last May and revenues up 58 per cent, with Patrick Seybold, corporate communications boss, stating that inventory is beginning to improve after a number of months with supply issues.

"We are now beginning to experience greater availability of product and are looking forward to this fall’s most anticipated launch, PlayStation Move," he said in a statement.

Although sales continue to improve for Sony, overall revenues for all three home consoles were down 20 per cent in the US during May compared to last year due to lower prices on hardware.
