That's not a unrealistic number and considering great PS fanbase in Europe, hopefully it can be achieved.

It will definatley happen march 08 is when FFXIII is released.

WilliamRLBaker3678d ago

by march means...by march not march 31st or whatever, It means that once march gets here they want to have sold that many consoles...so ff13 doesn't apply.

Quote WilliamRLBaker - 1.3 - "umm cloud...
by march means...by march not march 31st or whatever, It means that once march gets here they want to have sold that many consoles...so ff13 doesn't apply."

Quote avid Reeves: "Wir wollen bis Ende März die installierte Basis der PS3 von derzeit 1,35 auf fünf Millionen Einheiten ausbauen"

Translation: "We want to build up the install base of now 1.35 mil PS3 to 5 Mill ps3 BY THE END OF MARCH"

What part of "by the END of March" was unclear ? Or is the END of March suddenly the 1st ? As far as i know March ends one second after March 31st 11:59.59 PM, so the 31st of March sound about right to me, this would then INCLUDE FF13 if it is not delayed, which is very likely(the delay ...).

;)

Not trying to start a flamewar, but you should not fully trust google translations, especially not german -> english translations *hehe*

I believe SONY would meet its goal

However one should not forget that ps3 outsells x360 3:1 in EUROPE

x360 is the least selling console in the world . It is constantly being outsold by ps3 on a worldwide basis.

In japan ps3 outsells x360 10:1

WilliamRLBaker3678d ago (Edited 3678d ago )

sorry didn't see the by the end of.

and larry you pull numbers out ur ass...we never on a steady basis have concrete numbers out of europe, So you have no proof ps3 outsells 360 in any place but japan.

Yeah! Though every console manufacturer WANTS to sell consoles, allot of things could happen before march.

Sovannah Phum3678d ago

definitely achievable. I thought they were releasing killzone in europe before the u.s. if that's the case they should have no problem.

Lumbo3678d ago (Edited 3678d ago )

Sounds at least plausible, ~ 1,3 mill in the low sales month of April-August = 7 Month to go, which include the Holiday season. So a bit more than double the current amount sounds reachable.

Its at ~ 100k per week worldwide now, so in 28 weeks thats 2.8 million without the holiday bonus. A million extra for the holiday season sounds about right imho.

MaximusPrime3678d ago

considering the number of great games and community thingie (eg HOME, Littlebigplanet), PS3's future looks bright.

The figure could go over 3.65mill.
