The holidays were kind to the PlayStation Family, with the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Network bringing in more sales than ever before. The previously announced 1.7 million PS3s sold during the holidays aren't the only holiday milestone Sony's bragging about..

A statement from Patrick Seybold, Sony Computer Entertainment America's senior director of corporate communications and social media, notes that December 2009 was "the single highest selling month for PS3 hardware and software since its launch in the US," boasting a 90% increase in hardware sales, a 60% in software from the previous December.

And in terms of percentages that also confuse, the PlayStation Network had its "single highest revenue month, jumping 155% from December 2008 in North America." Sony says that Final Fantasy VIII was the most downloaded game of the month, with Q-Games' PixelJunk Shooter scoring the second place spot.
