Sony reveals 60GB to 20GB stock ratio

Details of the PlayStation 3's launch plans have been getting less rare lately, and SCEA has just announced that it plans to ship 800,000 units by January, making a total of 1.2 million PlayStation 3s for North America this year.

Sony had earlier revealed that it plans to launch with 100,000 units in Japan and 400,000 units in North America. So far, the launch numbers and an exact launch date for Europe remains unknown.

In addition to releasing its shipment plans, Sony also revealed that the stock ratio between the 60GB version and 20 version will be around 80:20. More 60GB versions are to be expected, especially after the launch of the box 360 saw more demand for the Premium version than Core.

...isn't 80:20 the same as 4:1? So, just to clarify, there will be more of the 60 gig versions than the 20 gig?

when someone makes fractions larger than they need to be, they are usually doing it to try to skew the statistics, etc. Also, it wasn't very clear on which was the 80, and which was the 20. And yes, I deserve a friggin star :)

they probably could do the whole launch without any of the 20 gigs and do them later.
but regardless, more 60 gigs is the right move.
