Sony Says PS3 Will Sell Tens of Millions

Sony has come out and stated in the past that they believe the PS3 can be as successful as the PlayStation 2 was, and they still back that belief.

Sony also thought they would sell out all 6 million PS3's at the end of March. Which they clearly didn't.

Now just over half of that...

Thanks for the backup Bladestar. I don't forget what I've read. The General, you clearly do, like Bladestar quoted also:

"Sony, which recently pushed back the launch of its console to November, said it expects sales during the first four to five months after launch to be about 6 million units."

So who's dumb now dude? Ah right, you are! Cheers with that.
Sony isn't scoring like they thought, planned or dreamed

Sony said they would ship out 6 million units by march which was not achieved because they only shipped just above 5 million consoles. Get your facts straight.

Anyways, Ps3 will sell 10s of millions during the 10 year life span of the ps3. Hopefully, the huge sales will be sparked this fall when the good games and even better movies start coming out. It is then that people will be able to use the multi-functional ps3 for its main purposes, Games and Entertainment. I still can't wait for the firmware update 2.0 to come out.

O well, until then, back to gears.

Actually General don't go kill theMart for saying what he is saying...

Sony said, "PS3 Will Sell Faster Than Xbox 360".
"Sony, which recently pushed back the launch of its console to November, said it expects [sales] during the first four to five months after launch to be about 6 million units.". Ofcourse they switch and change it to shipped. Don't we hate the way companies use the word shipping... and sales... for their advantage?

With all the complaints,lack of games,losing exclusives,high price,sony fanboys crying,and people losing interest overall with the media spreading rumors which makes it extermly hard for Sony to achive this goal.

what SONY says or predicts. It's not like they would say anything NEGATIVE. These days, Sony is known for promises and Potential, remember that one?. Yes I will never forget. Neither will I be a fool this GEN.

Just Cut the Damn PRICE Sony and hurry, or Fast forward to 2008, when I feel like the PS3 might be worth a PURCHASE, or even better yet, make Square bring out FFVII:REMAKE this year and you will get my money a lot sooner.

yeh bring the price cut, i was told the PS2 got a price cut of about £100 in the first year, well bring that ammount to a price cut this year for the PS3 and i will buy one. anyway yeh please Sony have a price cut this year, you must spend money to make money.

hanstolo, get ready for a temperature rise buddy!lol

With comments like these from SNE - I can't help but think of Jake Lamotta and them as a Raging Bull - taking a blasting and coming back for more. Then again they've made comments like these hundreds of times. Rememeber this beauty: Autumn 2006 - "We are not in competition with anyone - and the next-generation starts when we say it starts."lol

Sony Computer Entertainment Europe CEO David Reeves told the Web site he was worried less about moving units at the PS3's launch than he was about maintaining sales after early adopters had purchased their systems.

David Reeves - "We have built up a certain brand equity over time since the launch of PlayStation in 1995 and PS2 in 2000 that the first five million are going to buy it, whatever it is, even [if] it didn't have games," he told the site.

Oh I never forget...I think he should of worried about the "LATTER". I had the option of being an early adopter, and chickened out.

Really I don't care about how many they can POTENTIALLY sell. How many they are CURRENTLY NOT selling, due to their strategy this time around, is more important for THEM and thier relationship with DEVELOPERS.

It only matters to me if a game does not come to the PS3 because developers feel like, not enough gamers have it, but then again we have ALTERNATIVES or should I say a really back up console. So no complaints here. Oh yeah Cut the Price..

that's right on. Let's get the system moving along with GAMES before we really crank up the sh1t talking wars. I mean this is all part of SNE's DNA as they've done it for years, but gamers are smarter, older and wiser now and we just don't fall for the hyperbole so easily anymore. Up with games -- Let's go!
