Analyst P.J. McNealy says that his research indicates that Sony is currently in the midst of final assembly on its PlayStation 3 hardware and he believes Sony can ship 2 million worldwide this year.
it would have been more credible if paris hilton said that.....
these analysts and their research is to die for....
My wife is a stock analyst (retail stocks) and you can't imagine the access they have to information.They just don't get it of off internet rumour mills.
...I mean, I don't plan to get one (this year or next), but it sure will be nice to see the wait over! I would like to think that somehow, after launch, there will be harmony in the videogame world... but that is highly improbable.
This is like the 15th time this type of article has come up. My guess is, it probably takes 1 month to make 500,000 ps3's.
Cause when you think about it, if a company like Sony hasnt started production on their new console, the PS3, by now, then they are really screwed. So production being in full swing now, is good and it should already be in full swing, cause like i said, if they arent, then Sony has a lot of explaining to do, and there could be a possible delay again. But hopefully that doesnt happen and i cant wait to play RFOM and Motorstorm on Launch Day for the PS3. Cant Wait.
i don't see how full production is just now in full swing and be able to launch in a few weeks.
just seems you need more time than this to accomplish all the goals that need to be meet for a console launch.
but hey, i just play the games...so what do i know.
Sony is, by and large, a hardware manufacturing company (tvs, game consoles, computers, movie players, etc). I think it's fairly safe to assume they know how to produce a large amount of electronics very fast. They still won't satisfy demand (no one does at launch) but they'll be able to make them.
good point...still hard for me to grasp.
i bet if you walked into one of the sony factories, the saying busy as bees would be very appropriate.
I didn't like reading the part about the overheating and the constant reseting at TGS... whats up with that
lol that`s a warning in advance..never cover up ur console in a box or case for hours while it`s on.Give it breathing space. I personaly treat mine like it`s my gurlfriend,clean it in and out everyweek etc lol!
Pretty cool I guess, I know I want one of those 2 million. Why won't Europe see any of the 2 million units...?
Unfortunately it appears as if they were born in the wrong part of the world.
The delayed European launch can be taken as a positive thing. Since you will be receiving later generations of PS3 you can expect to have less of a chance of receiving a unit with hardware issues. Since they will have enough time and practice to have eliminated such issues during production.
