- There's going to be a price-drop on the PS2, or, they're expanding it into a new market. (+2 million adjustment)

- They expect the PS3 to maintain it's current momentum and sell through rate (same figures as last year, me thinks).

- They're 5.5 million behind the 360 at this point in time (both companies were using shipped figures, actual sell-through varies).

- Regarding the PSP, It's likely that there will be a PSP2 next year around Christmas, as they're lowering their projections by 5 million units on the device. Hopefully it's as handy as the Go and not too much more expensive. Launching a hand-held over $300 would be a little much, even for tech-enthusiasts like myself.

I would be the first in line for a PSP2.

but a psp 2 with dual analogues will be awesome. I still dont have an I pod so I want something that can hold 15 gigs of music so hopefully it has alot of built in memory.

The guy who made Sony was once a regular nobody just like you and I. Stop wishing and try at it =)

I say psp2 is christmas 2010 for sure, or they would be too far off and lose fanbase from psp.

I fully expect that corpulent lard bucket Greenturd to announce shortly.

On a second look at our Q4 figures we are proud to say on a technical recount we have sold 6,500,001 consoles and have posted a profit of $871.3.
