PlayStation 3 sales beating expectations, says Tretton

Hardware on track to meet 10m sales target for fiscal '09

Sales of the PlayStation 3 and the PSP are performing above expectations, according to Sony CEO Jack Tretton.

Sales of the PS3 are currently 30 per cent better than Sony's targets, clearing the way for the console to hit 10 million units by the end of the fiscal year in March 2009.

"We are in good shape for that number worldwide," Tretton told Reuters.

"We are tracking at 100 percent up over last year ... about 30 percent ahead of where we should be. So sales could slow down and we will still hit our number," he added.
