Sony Confident In Annual PS3 Sales Expectations
Overall game console sales have been sluggish this summer, but Sony Computerâ€™s Kazuo Hirai is not worried, telling Reuters at the Tokyo Game Show that PlayStation 3 sales are on track to reach the companyâ€™s target of 15 million units through March 2011. Sales for Sonyâ€™s April-September fiscal half were likely just above forecast, Hirai added.
A full 80% of the 38 million PS3 units sold globally so far are linked to Sonyâ€™s online PlayStation Network, Hirai also noted.
Sonyâ€™s Move motion controller for the PlayStation arrives in the U.S. tomorrow. The company also will begin offering playback capability of Blu-ray 3D discs on the PS3 a part of a software update next week.
