We already mentioned it yesterday in our PS3 CES Coverage that Sony announced to have shipped 1 million Sony PS3 consoles to retailers in the United States. Here the details from the press-release.
The PS3 has been reaching the one-million mark faster than the PS2.
“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, 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 platforms—PS2 and PSP,” said Tretton. “With three PlayStation platforms now available to users, 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.”
Sony sees the PS3 launch as a success. I do not think that many Sony video game fans agree. If you got lucky to score at PS3 at retail price, you still wonder where the cool PS3 games are. Lets hope that 2007 will bring titles to the PS3 that really make a difference in video gaming and not just pretty HD pictures.
