BBC: Sony sold 600K PlayStation 3s during Euro launch

Before going off on a wild tangent about PS3 chips being used in arcade machines, a short BBC news blurb claims, "More than a million [PlayStation 3] consoles were shipped across Europe on launch day last week with 600,000 sold." Of course, this figure includes the UK's record-breaking 165K unit debut. So, unlike what some folks think, there seems to be a benefit to keeping stock on store shelves. Wikipedia reports 930K units sold in North America to date, and 720K units sold in Japan; if you add in the BBC's unconfirmed 600K figure, Europe has purchased nearly one quarter of all PS3s sold to date. Not bad for a weekend.
