Message Text: Sony Computer Entertainment Inc. (SCE) today announced that the cumulative sales of the PlayStation 3 system reached a milestone of 70 million units worldwide as of November 4, 2012.

SCE added that sales of the PlayStation Move motion controller surpassed 15 million units worldwide as of November 11.

Since its launch in 2006, the PS3 system has continued to evolve with more streamlined design, larger Hard Disk Drive (HDD) capacity, and new features through software updates. In September 2012, SCE launched the new PS3 system, which has a reduced volume and weight of more than 50 percent compared to the original PS3 model, and of 25 percent and 20 percent respectively compared to the slim PS3 model launched in 2009. Sony claims its new PS3 has been well received by consumers around the world.

Along with the introduction of PS3 in November 2006, SCE launched PlayStation Network, which now operates in 59 countries and regions around the world. PlayStation Network supports free community-centric online gameplay, exclusive games from independent developers and major publishers, and a broad range of entertainment applications across movies, music, and sports. PS3 owners can access 170,000 downloadable digital content including 57,000 game content worldwide from PlayStation Network. In October 2012, SCE redesigned PlayStation Store for PS3, offering a more streamlined and accessible store experience, including a new user interface, simple search, and powerful content discovery. The new store is now available in Europe and North and Latin America with more countries and regions to follow.

PlayStation Plus, the subscription service package on PlayStation Store that offers benefits such as discounts on games or online storage for game saves, started to offer an "Instant Game Collection" in North America and Europe in July 2012. The Instant Game Collection enables PS Plus members to enjoy popular titles from third party developers and publishers as well as SCE Worldwide Studios at no extra cost. SCE has also enhanced the content offering for PS Plus members in Japan in November.

Introduced in September 2010, the PlayStation Move motion controller that enables users to play games is now supported by a wide range of titles with more than 400 as of November 2012, including Sports Champions 2, LittleBigPlanet Karting (Sony Computer Entertainment). Additionally, this month marks the global launch of Wonderbook, a new peripheral that delivers the next evolution of storytelling. Wonderbook uses the PlayStation Eye camera to take augmented reality to spectacular new places, while drawing players into new worlds and allowing them to interact with stories as they tilt or rotate it, or simply turn the pages.

Cumulative number of software titles for PS3 reached 3,590 with more than 595 million units sold worldwide, according to Sony's data. New titles are to be released from third party developers and publishers as well as SCE Worldwide Studios, including Assassin's Creed III (Ubisoft Entertainment.), Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 (Activision, Inc), PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale (Sony Computer Entertainment), towards the holiday season. In addition, software titles that support "cross platform feature" such as LittleBigPlanet 2: Cross Controller Pack, PlayStation, Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time (Sony Computer Entertainment) are also expected to be released.
