Sony's 'Super Slim' PlayStation 3 has attracted "very high interest" from Xbox 360 owners according to the hardware giant.
SCEA's John Koller (we seem to hear that name a lot), told Gamespot in a recent interview that the company has been seeing lots of interest from those looking for a second console.
"We have seen a very high interest rate from Xbox 360 consumers wanting to purchase a second console," he said. "We've held up Uncharted 3 as our flagship product over the last year and it's a good opportunity for those types of consumers to come over and own a second console in their household."
Sony will be introducing bundles for the new PS3 Super Slim in the lead up to Xmas and feels that this will only help increase interest in the console.
"We saw the same kind of thing happen in reverse during the PS2 years when a lot of PS2 consumers said they wanted to get an Xbox because of Halo and some other games. So we think the strategy works and it's a good one."
The new 500GB Super Slim PlayStation 3 goes on sale next Friday, a 12GB flash version will be released in October.
