While all the attention is on the upcoming PS4, it’s worth bearing in mind that South Africa still has a strong PS3 install base.

MyGaming spoke to Ster Kinekor Entertainment CEO Mario dos Santos to find out just how many PS3 consoles have been sold in in SA to date.

“The PS3 install base in SA is just beyond the 400,000 unit mark. Those are all sold into market, and there has been a little bit of grey market sales, but not a lot,” said Dos Santos.

“There is still some great upcoming content for the PS3, so I think everyone recognises that until there’s this critical mass for PS4, then the PS3 will still be the go-to console and we expect PS3 to live side-by-side with PS4,” said Dos Santos.

In PS4 news, Dos Santos revealed that in SA demand is exceeding supply for the next-gen console, but Sony holds the South African market in high regard.
