PS3 Planned Launch Numbers Compared to 360 Launch

360 Launch Sales in late 2005
USA – Nov 25 Europe – Dec 2 Japan – Dec 10
November 2005 326000 (NPD)
December 2005 281000 (NPD) 500000 (Microsoft) 62,000 on launch weekend (Enterbrain)
2005 Total 607000 (NPD) 500000 (Microsoft) Slightly more than 62,000
103,990 by April, 2006 (Microsoft)

PS3 Planned Launch Shipments for late 2006
USA – Nov 17 Europe – March 2007 Japan – Nov 11
Launch Day in November 400000 100000
December 2006 ? ?
2006 Estimated Total 1600000 400000

A few caveats:

  • I assume the PS3 allocation ratio for 2006 would remain the same as the launch ratio which may not be true.
  • It’s suspect if Sony will meet their estimates for end of 2006 given that they’ve just dropped their launch estimates so much. It’s possible but it’s not a sure thing.
  • I couldn’t find reliable third party estimates for 360 launch sales in Europe. I quoted Microsoft’s own numbers which isn’t the most impartial measure.

This is really disappointing news. And did they have to blame it on Blu-Ray again? There was already enough anger and resentment towards Blu-Ray.
