PS3 price drop drives Amazon sales

Ross Miller

Yesterday, the 60GB PlayStation 3 sales surged on Amazon following the $100 price drop. One day later and it still going strong, with a 2,700% increase in rank. It was previously number one on the charts but has since been taken over by the fragFX PS3 gamepad, seeing a 40,078% rise in rank. In fact, 13 of the top 16 sales movers are PlayStation 3 software and accessories. Last we heard, Sony was screen-capping the website and forwarding it to Konami.

[Update: the 2700% increase in sales is from sales rank - i.e. from 28 to 2 -- not sales. Sorry for the flub in phrasing.]
