After all the doomsday talk when it launched, the PlayStation 3 has recovered from its initial slump and is now doing rather well for itself.

Some, including the founding president of SCEE, Chris Deering, are even saying that it might go on to outsell the PlayStation 2, which is currently sitting on 147.6 million units shipped worldwide.

"I think it can sell as many as PS2, maybe more," Deering revealed in an interview with Eurogamer.

"In the case of both PS1 and PS2, we sold more Slim units than original models. The PS3 Slim has only been out a couple of years. If you could get a PS3 for a hundred pounds... Can you imagine? It could go much higher and last longer."

There hasn't been a significant PlayStation 3 price drop for some time, but sales have been strong for Sony this year.
