Sony Corp., the world's largest maker of video-game players, is maintaining its forecast of selling 6 million PlayStation 3 units for the fiscal year that ends in March, a spokesman said.
Easy peasy. 4million already - so 2million over the rest of the world.
and did you say 4 million already? i didn't know that.
That was announced a week or so ago...of course that's in only shipped. I believe from reports tht half of that has sold to customers
When did Microsoft ship 10million 360's?
SONY is getting up
the same time period the 360 had, it shipped 10.4mil and someone did point out BIOSHOCK
I thought the 360 did 10million in a year - didn't they announce that in december/january. It says at the end of the fiscal year, not the ps3 has been out a year. It would be 6million in 6months...so you're way off
impressive on Sony's part.
to paint this as bad news. Is it?lol =]
Its definitely uphill from here on out for the PS3! =)
Sony didn't shipping out 4 m units.
I beg to differ - was in the news.
"The Nikkei Saturday morning edition reported that the Sony Chairman said Friday that Sony shipped 4 million PlayStation 3 consoles worldwide."
Xbox rules ... Sony is crap! I'm a fanboy, look at me!!
Just kiddin. Taken up Madden Raiders for the first negative comment.
Sony has to deliver, no other choice. February was a bad month for PS3 hardware. I'm assuming March will be better with the onslaught of positive news. Anyway, congrats to Sony if they can pull it off.
what's so Impressive about Sony shipping 6 mil units? Are you gonna buy all of them?
Hard-Cores buy first and casual gamers think twice. Remember this console had been delayed so it's no biggie...
If these numbers were their initial launch numbers, Yes, that would be a great feat.
It's about time
managed to turn a severe ps3 shortage into a ps3 overhaul. Good for them
According to the latest sales numbers, they have shipped 1M in North America and 750k in Japan. If they sold less than 2M consoles to date, why are they trying to ship 6M total within two weeks time?
A good launch in Europe will see 1M to 1.5M sold in a best case scenario. Meanwhile, 2.5M to 3M consoles will sit in a warehouse loosing sony money. I'd rather see sony hold back production and save some money than produce excessive stock for the sole purpose of being able to say they have 'shipped' 6M. Sony has got to be hurting right now for money, why are they being so wasteful? Especially when actual sales data is so easily obtained...
