Riding high on tonight's news that the Playstation 3 was the top selling home console in September according to NPD, the head of Sony Computer Entertainment of America says they've only just begun.


Nearly half a million people purchased Playstation 3s in September, according to NPD figures.

"We are in the midst of one of the most exciting times for PlayStation as we continue to redefine entertainment experiences for consumers, both at home and on the go," Sony's Jack Tretton said, pointing to the price drop for the Playstation 3 and the release of the PSPgo. "We've made unprecedented strides in digital and mobile entertainment with the availability of PSPgo."


"The best part is that we've only just begun an onslaught of relentless, rich content hitting throughout the fiscal year, including Ratchet and Clank Future: A Crack in Time, God of War III, MAG, and ModNation Racers," he said.

Tretton said that Sony is "continuing to stack the chips this holiday with great game content" mentioning the release of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars for the PSP and Assassin's Creed 2.

He also pointed out the rave reviews that Uncharted 2: Among Thieves has been getting from review publications, including this one.

"There simply has never been a better time to be part of the PlayStation family and we look forward to providing you with the best entertainment content and experience for many, many years to come," he said.

Nice to see Sony finally win a few there. (The PS3 Was NEVER a bad system, it just wasn't a 'Worth twice as much as other systems' system). Though I'd argue that their statements are a little bit hyperbolic: Really, Sony, you're only 'winning' after a year or two of stumbling out of the gate BADLY. and if PSPgo is any indication, you're still screwing things up.

Nonetheless, I hope PS3 continues to suceed. Mostly because if they're not, the only competition will be between the Wii (and the new Nintendo along with it) and MS.

and that's not good for anybody. #npd
