Bloomberg: Sony's 100k in sales included PS2

According to Bloomberg Japan, the recent statements by Sony that they had moved 100k units in the US in one week actually included PS2 sales.

Quote:

The price cut and new model helped Sony increase sales of all consoles including the older PlayStation 2 to 100,000 units in the week ended Nov. 11, (Sony) spokeswoman Kimberly Otzman said in an e-mail.

Note by Kspraydad:

I've contacted the reporter and the email he received was in response to his writing Sony to ask for clarification of numbers quoted by AP. I've changed the title to remove the ? mark as it is no longer in question as to what Sony meant by the 100k.

Sony lieing again....

What else is new...

Zhuk3660d ago

This is why I never believe anything Sony says, because they lie to their consumers and to the valued customers. I have bought every single Playstation system they have made yet stuff like this always leaves a dry taste in my mouth

Xbox is the BEST3660d ago

agree with you Zhuk. The Emotion Engine was hyped, Gamecube has better graphics. Don't lie to a paying customer.

Zhuk3660d ago

I agree friend, the Emotion Engine was one of the most overhyped pieces of garbage in gaming history. Sometimes I go back and read the tech specs on it released by Sony to have a good laugh because it's so ridiculous.

Anyways its good to see more people on this site telling it how it is, especially with the Sony fandroid infection we have here. Bubble for you!

Xbox and Gamecube. I don't know what you guys are blabbering about. Are you angry that Sony understated how powerful it was? (look to God of War 2 and MGS 3 for proof).

fredy3659d ago (Edited 3659d ago )

about the ps2 having more power i dont know what kind of drugs you are doing cause last time i checked all the games on xbox that ps2 have have alot better graphics then the ps2.

FACT

Go rent the games..and if in fact the Emotion was more powerful, whatt does that tell you about the looks of the Multi games?

and if that doesn't say much then what does it tell you today with the nextgen consoles and multi games...

Nasim, finally give up on the PS3? Nice name change too, but I guess you are not too happy with it hence the second account in 2.1. Well I am glad you are happy with your x-box 360 now, that and Microsoft's spotless reputation with truthyness with the customer base. They sure owned up to the RROD hardware issues right away! Yup if you can't trust Microsoft, who can you trust?

GIJeff3659d ago (Edited 3659d ago )

wasnt the limit for the PS2, that what the rest of the system's fault. The emotion engine was able to crank out as much horsepower as a P4 2.4 GHZ. Where do you think "off the toy shelf computing" came from? The Xbox has a 733mhz p3. The emotion engine was much faster for AI, physics, etc...

and no company lies?
huh?
all do trust me :P

Genuine3659d ago

I don't know of any mainstream business that lies as much and as frequently as sony's games division. Any hardcore gamer that has been around since the ps1 should know that sony is full of ****.

gnothe13659d ago

theres a difference between lying an deception. sony is full of deception!! they like to deceive people, an make things seem better than they are to get personal gain!!

ReBurn3659d ago

Lying and deception are the same thing. Both involve not telling the truth.

Gamespot-equals-EGM3659d ago

No, deception is not telling the FULL truth, in other words only telling part of the story but hiding other parts.

I think Sony was being deceptive rather than outright lying. Unless Stringer said it was 100k ps3's sold.

Sez 3659d ago

and sonyfans where just hyped up about the 100k sales in one week. sony is not looking good in their PR dept.

Martini3659d ago

Tell us something we don't know. Sony = hype and BS.
