Slim PS3 news: Shipment Results Preview for July-Sept for the Big Three

PS3 HW – 2.8m units shipped (2.0m sold). Sony sold 400,000 fewer PS3s this quarter than in the previous September quarter. However, like the previous September quarter, a new model / bundle was introduced and so Sony had to make sure there were enough Move bundles in case sales were surprisingly good for September and beyond. So as with the previous quarter, I have Sony shipped 800,000 more PS3s than they sold. It still looks like a down quarter though. Software shipments were likely 25m-30m units – it will partially depend on how Sony counts bundled software with Move.

X360 HW – 3.2m units shipped (2.8m sold). Microsoft normally overships more than this to prepare for the holiday rush but the company probably needs to leave physical space for Kinect bundles over the December quarter, so sales should be near shipment figures. The Slim / temporary clearance sale lift also began in June, so the push to prepare for bigger demand is spread between this quarter and the June quarter.
