PS3 sells out in first week, but Sony forgets to say how many

...or how few. According to Sony the PS3 sold out fast, which isn't surprising with such long PS3 waiting lines at launch.

Sony said the following about the PS3 sales: "Sony Computer Entertainment America has been airlifting additional shipments of PlayStation 3 systems into the North American market since the launch on November 17."

Analyst PS3 launch shipping estimates range from as low as 150,000 units to Sony's promised 400,000 units. Sony still plans to ship 2 million units worldwide by the end of 2006, 1 million of those going to the U.S.

I don't see how either of you contribute to an intelligent conversation. I actually believe that you are rather detrimental.

So tell me, why do you matter more than him?

power of Green 3952d ago

As soon as i run into intelligent posters i'll be having conversations if the subjects intrest me. #2.3 you're an idiot with a Dictionary next to you.

dude, belive me, I'm no fanboy. I own a psp and a ps2, and I love the MGS franchise, its just that I'm not really all that hyped up about sony anymore, and this was just no surprise for me, I said "typical sony" because this is not the first time they "lie" about themselves, its just that ....you have to be real sometimes. dont get all hurt and offensive about it.

uh oh wait. Yeah so why is knowing how much they brought out in the market that big of thing? It was launch, we already knew they cut supplies and are still having troubles getting all the pieces for the system. We know that it'll probably be 4 months (just like with 360) till they get the supplies rolling out. Basically I just want to hear what Sony is doing right... because I'm just getting a little tired of nothing but the wrong stuff. Heard it heard it heard it. I hear that the online store is working. How's that like? What games do they have out for us to buy? What's the feedback on the dual shocker 3? What's next from insomniac? Whens the next 20 Gig game coming out and what's it going to offer? You know News that gamers want to know kind of like the title of the website

TOM3952d ago

The problem with that is,as of now ,there isnt anything good to report.When there is good news they report it. dont blame the messanger,blame sony. News is news,good or bad.

Tut3952d ago

There is a lot of good news to report, this site just doesn't like to put those up.

Besides, even if they did it would be like, "Oh my God, Sony gave away a million game consoles? So what, they didn't give away two million!"

It's the typical bullsh!t from a lot of people's mouths. There are MUCH better sites out there for all parties for news, and I am sure a lot of us visit them. This site just produces juicy speculation that everyone clings to.

For an easier comparison... think of the New York Times and then think of The National Enquirer. Yeah, www.news4gamers.com is 'The National Enquirer' of the online gaming news realm, but they get lucky a lot more often.

ehh...you know this is a user powered site right? If you think there is so little good news reported on N4G about Sony why haven't you stepped up to the job and reported it yourselves? Yes there have been alot of negative stories on N4G but that has nothing to do with this website, N4G just reflects what other game sites report. Also you will find plenty of good PS3 news on this site, but I guess people only see what they want to see...

Sony cut their expected shipment of 400,000 way back. Many estimate as few as 150,000 actually got out in time for launch day. By comparison, nearly a half million Wii's were in stores on launch day. Both sold out, but who has a bigger right to be proud of that claim?? Of course PS3 sold out, because of the paltry amount they were able to ship, not because everyone who wanted one got one. Cutting the amount they shipped on launch day with no promise of when more would be available probably helped to sell more 360's than PS3's.

FamoAmo3951d ago

Sony had a max 150k units in US for launch. No store got the amount they were told they were getting. Lot's of rain checks... I heard it could have even been 100k.. I don't really care how many Sony puts out this year b/c THE FIRST TO 10 MILLION HAS ALWAY'S WON AND IT LOOKS LIKE THE 360.
