After its initial launch of 400K units into the U.S. market, SCEA plans to ship another 800K units via air-freight through the end of the year, making 1.2 million units total.
I have no idea why to believe Sony anymore. Anything more then those 400.000 in USA would surprise me a lot. Surprise me in a good way Sony for once please
Europe won't get their PS3 till '07 and chances are, most of us who plan on buying a PS3 won't get ours until '07 too. so in a way, we in the US are almost in the same boat at the Europeans.
No not really, because Europe's delays after March 2007 will be around the same for the U.S., Just later. So no it's not the same, people in Europe still won't be able to find one in stores for about 4-5 months after launch, just like the U.S..
Well lets see here, 80% PS3-600 20% PS3-500 Makes sense for the most part, although I would of had it be 100% for the 600 because all early adopters are willing to pay through the nose for their long belated console. Than mid 2007 switch to 20% 500. MS did the same thing. But that's me, it makes more sense but whatever. Still what bothers me is the very low launch amount of 400K. The problem is that with a small number it has a much better chance of being delayed a month or several months. Even the smallest production issue could push the PS3 Japan and U.S. launch back another month.
Well 800k units isn't out of the question. I haven't seen any major developers overly worried so I'm not worried. Its either a PS3 or 360 for me and if I get my PS3 at launch I will be trading my 360 and games in for PS3 accessories and games. Its as simple as games for me and PS3 has the games I'm just dying to play! DMC4, RFOM, GT5, Motorstorm, MGS4, Heavenly Sword, LAIR, FF13, FF13 versus all exclusives and all games I will buy without hesitation. Stake those against the 360 exclusives and its not even close in my opinion, its not about company loyalty but rather which system has the games I want
and are we suppose to believe that you really have a 360? What kind of idiot will trade any of launch PS3 title for Gear of war, etc? Unless you are a PS3 fan. if any of the (TOP) games you mentioned would be available at lauch for the PS3 than I would believe you. Since I will buy a PS3 to play MSG4 & FF13. but I will not be getting rid of my 360 for no fking Motorstorm and miss out on Gears of war, Halo3, Forza, etc. It's ok to want a PS3 heck I want all consoles (including the wii), but to go as low as saying that you would trade the 360 for ps3 launch titles without even seen game play for any of them is simply disgusting… So, bottom line is you are a fanboy you just don’t know it.
There are a lot of people overhere saying they own a 360 which they actually don't. They should check also with the new rules of this site if one owns it. Isn't lying forbidden also?
And this amount is not enough, and cople millions of american want to buy a ps3 at launch and moost won,t get 1.
with "we'll make up the numbers as we go strategy" Anyhow I probally can't even toch one of these when it's launched. I'm not going to miss a days of work just to camp out. So when will the next shipments come in if you don't get one at launch? Well if the europeans are saying the same thing as Iam when will they get thier 2nd and 3rd shipments?
It is what is and we'll have to take our chances of getting one. Simple as that.
Sony are doing really well with the PS3 (cough, sarcasm, cough)!!
This is exactly what I said months ago. Sony most likely won't ship 2 million consoles by the end of the year. They haven't started manufacturing it yet and if they run into one teeny tiny bump in the manufacturing process, it will totally throw off the amount they can ship. I figure maybe 1 million total by the end of the year. Thats if things go somewhat well for sony. And Mart..We all know The Truth don't own a 360. He has been trying to convince everyone of that since he first signed onto this site. He is clearly SONY biased and uses the LIE that he has a 360 to further his cause. He definately should have a bubble taken away for lying. You self proclaim your self "The Truth". But you lie and make up things to make points for your beloved PS3. The extent Sony Fanboys will go to make a point is ridiculous. Xbox live screen names can be found in magazines and on the internet. And he could have a friend who has a 360 as popular as the console is right now. As a whole the 360 is the most loved console by its fan base. How do I know this? Because of all the records it holds. Most games sold per console. Most accessories sold per console. The fastest Console to sell 5 million. And so on. By and large people who own the 360 love it more than any previous console by the amount of money they spend on it. Thanks Microsoft.
real deal, why is it that the last few times I've posted a comment. Your post seems to be a copy of almost exactly what I just said. This has happened before I'd atleast like you to give me some credit. Really don't think this is a big deal just know I don't like people reiterating what I say and passing it off as their thoughts. Also trust me your comment here doesn't even come close to the copying i've seen in the past.
that might be the single most 'I'm a loser and need attention/credit' post - ever.
or I don't like people stealing my thought processes and predictions. Why don't you contribute and you'll see what I mean.
Paul, you could be right. But still then, what you state is a bit over the edge. Not to attack you in anyway though I mean, if they are really special, very exclusive thought processes and predictions then you would have a point AND probably everyone would know directly they were yours if they would be really special. But these are actually generally predictions I read in Real Deal's post. Things that everyone though about in some way. Thoughts that are processed by many people and predicted the same way by masses all around the world. It's not that special you know... And actually it doesn't matter also. 'Stealing' thought processes? Just make sure you spread a newsletter then which are copyright protected so they have to quote you or get patents on it. For sure don't post it on boards or websites! The wheel could have been invented multiple times by different sources also...
