SCEJ prez delivers PlayStation numbers: 38m PS3s, 62m PSPs

During a live presentation at Sony's TGS booth happening now – it's only in Japanese, so no liveblog folks – Sony Computer Entertainment Japan president Hiroshi Kawano delivered a quick update on the PlayStation business, by means of some hardware sales numbers.

First, the PlayStation 3. Kawano revealed that Sony has sold 38 million PS3 units so far, with five million of those being in Japan. He specified that two million PS3 units were sold in Japan in the last year. Second was the PSP. Sony has sold 62 million PlayStation Portables globally, with 15 million of those being in Japan. Naturally, Kawano is bullish on the sales numbers and says there's "very positive momentum in Japan and around the world."
