Xbox 360 on top of Oz for October

5 11 2007

Outsells Wii and PlayStation 3.

September was a big month for the Xbox 360, with Halo 3 driving sales of the console. Well, the momentum has kept up, with Microsoft revealing today that according to GFK figures for October, the Xbox 360 was the best selling console hardware for the month.

Halo 3 also remained Australia’s number one game and sold more copies and generated more revenue than any other title across all formats. Australians also spent more dollars on Xbox 360 hardware, software and accessories than on any other platform. David McLean, Australian Xbox Director, says, “We have maintained our momentum throughout October and with the blockbuster range of titles we have coming in November and December, Xbox 360 is primed to finish the year on a very successful high.”

PS3 Gets ‘Largest Ever’ Campaign; 80GB Sees ‘Phenomenal’ Sales

3 11 2007

Sony Computer Entertainment America VP of Marketing Peter Dille has proudly unveiled two new TV spots for the PS3 and noted that the 80GB model has seen great sales growth at $499.

Last month we talked with Kim Nguyen, SCEA Marketing Manager, about the PS3’s new brand campaign. Today, elaborating on Nguyen’s comments, Peter Dille (VP of Marketing) discussed some more of the key points of the campaign on the official

In conjunction with the launch of the new 40GB PS3 for $399 (which kicks off today), Dille said that the new campaign starts this weekend – hopefully spurring sales of the cheaper PS3. While the ‘White Room’ ads focused on the console’s power, this campaign, which Dille says is “our largest ever behind a hardware platform,” will focus on all the games coming out and the functionality of the machine.

“… we wanted to move beyond the ‘power’ message with a more high-energy, entertainment driven focus for the PS3. The games are here, the price point is now $399 and we wanted to make the news loud and clear. But we need to deliver that in a way that befits the PlayStation brand,” Dille said. “And so, beyond the brilliant HD games that the PS3 delivers, you’ll also see a big focus behind the PS3’s Blu-ray movie capability and, for the first time, you’ll see a major focus behind the PlayStation Network (did I mention online gaming is free on PS3??) and the exclusive gaming content available on the PlayStation Store, as well as breakthrough services like Home.”

Dille also noted that the 80GB PS3, which is backwards compatible with PS2 and comes with Motorstorm packed in, has been “demonstrating phenomenal sales growth since we announced the $499 price point.”

Two of the television spots are viewable at the blog now, and Dille said more spots are under development and will be revealed as they’re completed. Read the rest of this entry »
