PS3 sold 440,000 in U.S. over Thanksgiving weekend

Wow, it only does everything including massive Black Friday sales. SCEA communications Patrick Seybold has confirmed that PS3 sold 440,000 units for the week ending November 29th. This is seriously stuff.

"The 2009 Holiday season got off to an amazing start for Playstation, with all key retailers showing a significant increase for PS3, PSP and key holiday titles over Black Friday and the holiday weekend," Seybold said in an emailed statement.

"Playstation 3 demand was at an all time high with the system selling more than 440,000 units for the week ending 11/29/09."

Seybold was so positive about the PS3's future, he said American entertainment will be "defined" by Playstation products.

"In today's economy, consumers are drawn to items that offer the most value for their money, making the PS3 an ideal choice for those who want a comprehensive gaming and entertainment all in one package," he added.

"Combine that with the exclusive holiday bundles and an extensive software lineup, one that many analysts are calling the best in the industry, with titles such as Ratchet and Clank: A Crack in Time, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, and LittleBigPlanet: Game of the Year, we have no doubt that momentum and demand will continue and consumers will prove that entertainment this holiday season is going to be defined by Playstation.

Good news for Sony and the industry on a whole.
