Skepticism over Sony PS3 production forecast

Posted by David Hunter at 8:48 PM ET.

Earlier in the week, I mentioned an interview with Sony Computer Entertainment American president Kaz Hirai in which the production numbers for the PS3 were bobbled about until settling at 2 million units ready at launch in November and 2 million more by the end of the year. Not everyone is buying it including the analysts at Mitsubishi UFJ Securities who are estimating only 3 million units by March 2007 and correspondingly cut their Sony rating to the consternation of the stock market.

Meanwhile, Sony is promising to “offer 27 playable games” at the Tokyo Game Show next month. Since they claim to have “offered 13 playable PS3 software titles at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) trade show in Los Angeles in May,” it’s clear that playable doesn’t mean completed.
