PS3 Launch Outsells Launch of… Whatever!
As you no-doubt know, Sony has announced that they met their target of selling 1 million PS3 consoles by the end of 2006. One million consoles in this kind of timeframe is more consoles than Sony sold at the launch of the PSOne or the launch of the PS2. More than Microsoft sold at the launch of the Xbox 360, as a matter of fact.
GameSpot has said that they have PLAYSTATION 3 consoles available for sale.
Some are saying that this abundance of PS3 consoles shows that demand has peaked already. But really, it just says that Sony is doing particularly well at supplying North America with PS3’s after a launch with fewer consoles than they hoped.
Sony has also said that they want to sell 6 million PS3’s by March of 2007. We’ll see if Sony will be able to meet that goal.
