Sony May Not Meet PlayStation 3 Shipment Targets

Sony Corp., which slashed its profit forecast yesterday, said it may not reach this year's shipment target for the PlayStation 3 game console because of a parts shortage in the Blu-ray high-definition disc drive.

"''The honest answer is it's more of a target'' for PlayStation 3 shipments, Jack Tretton, co-chairman of Sony Computer Entertainment America, said yesterday in an interview. ``Clearly we've had production issues.'"

oh ok, it wasn't something that sony had promised and stated as fact and then failed to deliver on. because sony never do that. it was a TARGET! just a idea. a concept. why would everyone actually believe what sony said? its obvious they just have vague targets and may or may not achieve them as they wish. people need to leave sony alone! they have targets to achieve!

why Sony haven't called their PS3 achievements (achievements) because their achievements are impossible? They should call them targets, which, don't really matter if you don't get them.

Play B3yond*

*Sony Corporation in no way takes liability if you fail to "Play B3yond." The PS3, the ability to "Play B3yond" and the associated "Play B3yond" logos and trademarks are more like targets we think you might be able to achieve someday. You know, if you stick with us, we absolutely believe that someday (not as yet specified) you will utilize you PS3 console to "Play B3yond." For now, though, it really is more like "Play B3fore B3yond" or "Target: Play B3yond." Seriously, thanks for your patience while we work hard to achieve3 "Play B3yond" status for you and your hard earned dollars we have used to line the coffin Kutaragi sleeps in at night.

If this news is stating that the initial shipment of 500'000 will be smaller then that is BIG news. If it just effects the 1 million by the end of Dec. number , I don't think anybody believed them in the first place.

by the article. wasn't very specific. you're right though. if it's the launch quantity affected, then it spells trouble. even with their projected 100/400,000 ratio, it's going to be a horrible launch for retailers and consumers. i was an asst mngr at gamestop here in nebraska during the 360 launch. all i can say is that i'm glad i don't work their anymore because this will be worse. get ready for a ton of jack@sses in every store you enter from launch day til weeks after. and for those buying a ps3 during that period watch your back. i would recommend bringing some friends with you when you pick it up cuz you know there will be jackers out there.
