Looks like Sony has been making a big push in sales lately because they have announced today that they have reached 50 million units sold worldwide. This figure comes from a report in March 29th and is certainly a great milestone for the company and the console as a whole. The better news for Sony is that their Move controller has shipped 8 million units. Now although this figure only marks shipped units it still is a good sign that retailers require that much stock.
With such a large number of units around the world Sony also states that they have 79 million different PSN accounts across 59 countries worldwide. This news certainly bodes well for Sony which has been seen as the console bringing up the rear of this generation. With Blu-Ray built directly into the system it can serve as more than a gaming console at that.
