More than 23 million PS3s now sold

Along with over 189 million games.

Sony has revealed the latest figures for PlayStation 3 hardware and software sales.

The company's latest financial report (as spotted by Kotaku) shows 23.8 million PS3 consoles have now been shifted around the world.

The number of games sold for the PS3 is 189.7 million. That figure includes all third-party and PlayStation Network titles.

So how does that compare with Sony's rivals? Well, Microsoft announced Xbox 360 had reached the 30 million sold mark back in May. The 360 had a year's head-start in terms of launch date, of course.

In March Satoru Iwata said 50 million Wiis had been shipped globally. That's shipped, not sold, but you know.
