Default Sony's PlayStation 3 Hits 50 Million in Worldwide Sales

The Move controller has done well too, coming in at a surprising 8 million.

I immediately replaced my 60G when it died for the new slim model. It is so useful that I simply have to have it in my A/V rack.

I still chuckle when I see Nintendo's woes and the years worth of Wii "shortages," of which I think were fabricated to boost sales.

I still have my 1st gen 20gb model and love it. I upgraded the drive to 320GB. It's been repaired once for overheating but that was kinda my fault. Did not pay attention to it's power consumption and got into the habbit of leaving it on even not being used. Duhhh.

I bought an early model for watching blu rays - at that time the specification was still changing frequently and you knew that Sony would not add anything that could not be played on the PS3. However, I recently sold it as it developed serious fan noise and instead got a Sony standalone player. The PS3 is seriously overpowered and noisy (even the slim) for watching movies so I can't understand why it is still a selling point. It plays games too although often not as well as the competition.
