    PS3 Outsells XBox 360's Launch

    Sony today announced that they have sold 1 million Playstation 3s in North America since the launch of the console six weeks ago.

    That makes the Playstation 3 the fastest selling home console Sony has ever launched.

    Microsoft sold 600,000 of their Xbox 360s from their November launch to the second week in January.


    "SCEA went to great lengths to help meet demand for PS3, including airlifting systems into North America on a weekly basis to ensure a steady stream of units were available to consumers throughout the holiday season," said Jack Tretton, president and CEO, SCEA. "The fact that we were able to reach the one-million mark faster than our top-selling platform, the PS2, further validates the strength of the PlayStation brand and our belief that consumers are ready to experience true high-definition gaming." ... "Reaching the one million mark for PS3 is the first of many major milestones for us as we head into a new year. Even more impressive, is that we were able to accomplish this feat while successfully managing two other gaming platforms--PS2 and PSP," said Tretton. "With three PlayStation platforms now available to gamers, 2007 will be about software and delivering innovative, new experiences and award-winning franchises to consumers, both through retail and through our online PLAYSTATION Network."

    According to a report in the Associated Press, Sony announced that -- just like they promised -- they've hit their shipment targets in North America.

    There's genuine surprise that Sony was able to make their promised shipment targets in North America; according to NPD reports (which is only U.S. figures) the console sold 197k units during the month of November. Sony has said they expected to ship 2M consoles worldwide by the end of the calendar year, however, no worldwide shipment figures were released at the Consumer Electronics Show, now underway in Las Vegas. During Sony's keynote Peter Dille, senior vice president of marketing for Sony Computer Entertainment America said the PlayStation 3 reached 1M units sold faster than both PlayStation and PlayStation 2. Sony hopes to sell 6M PS3s worldwide by the end of March.

    Ok,not your mistake.
    Duh!
    What do you expect when it had a horrible launch games?
    The only games worthwhile playing are Motorstorm(if you import it from Japan),Resistance,GTHD demo(free for dl) and Tekken DR(which is a port of a PSP game-costs 10$ too download).
    Europe PS3 launch(in march) will have some really awesome games(Motorstorm will have online,wooooohooooo).

    Oh, thats understandable. That didn't stop people hating the Wii though.

    i know it hasn't had a very long launch, neither has the wii. it just isnt the console i'd like to spend hundreds of dollars on. i'm not saying the gameplay wasn't fun, im just saying it wasn't a console i'd waste money on. even if it had a few titles in the future which are very popular and good such as FF and stuff, i wouldn't get one. 900 bucks, no thanks.

    But enjoy it anyway

    *burns Wii.fubu with eyebeams*
    PS3 has two versions.
    A version is 500 bucks which is double the cost of wii and isn't retarded as A version of Xbox 360.
    B version is 600 bucks and it's all-in-one package deal.
    I don't hate the wii nor do i hate nintendo.
    I HATE BEING RIPPEDOFF!
    Selling a console for 250$ and they only waste like 150$ to make one + it's just gamecube 1.1 + wiimote and the best game it currently has is Zelda TP which is *drum rolls* GC port is a highway robbery.

    well considering i'm an australian, the price is 900-1000 here.

    I can't say too much about the game cube though, i heard it sucked. i know about nintendo titles, but i havent played much, but the thing is.. Swinging around etc tottaly took me in. I actualy regret buying a xbox, sure its good and all, but i tottaly prefer my pc over it (not for all the other abilities the pc got, just gaming in general).

    Funny thing is since the console costs so much more money the fan base for the PS3 is so much higher. The case of having more games and features just make it worth the hit in the wallet. I am about to buy mine.

    Only thing I find disapointing is that it's onyl around 60% as pwoerful as originally promised and insteed fo blowing the xbox 360 out fo the water, it's only on par and it costs more.
