Sony Computer Entertainment Europe president David Reeves has said he still expects the PlayStation 3 to sell over 100 million units worldwide this generation, and that the PlayStation Network will be key to the console's future.
"The PS3 install base is growing faster than PS2's was at this point in its lifecycle," Reeves told trade magazine Develop.
"We see the future in the video games industry, certainly in terms of software sales, as continuing to grow – new markets, new demographics, and new games appealing to new sectors of the industry," he continued.
"And the key to the future is the PlayStation Network. Games put straight onto the PSN are the big opportunity."
