Probably big production of PS2 due to phazing it out.

lol that was said last quarter... and the before... and the before.

How many big production quarters PS2 will have?

PS3 is selling really good.

The people making this claim need to first explain where the ps2's are going

Sony: producing so many ps2's just to ship to the local landfill

There is a reason why Sony don't show the numbers separated. They are phazing out production of PS2 becaus in the long run it's to expensive but they want to produce enough for the long period of time for the emerging markets where it's syill popular and will sell for a longer time.

Sony merged the number to hide the Vita sales... not the PS3 or PS2.



And they merged PS3/PS2 numbers just for fun.

:p

Like I said they merged the number into two categories to hide the terrible Vita sales... Sony kind like explained that.



I do not believe that the PS2 has sold more than 0.5 million in one quarter. Hell, we have 2013!

Given the fact that there is only the sole PS3 figure (10m) forecast for the next fiscal year I can assume that maybe the rumours of PS2 production ceasing is true and this is the last PS2 shipment, and they managed to pulled it bigger than before, which would tell us that there is still some demand for the PS2 probably in the emerging markets. Next quater results will prove me right or wrong. Plus possibly higher PS3 sales or slight overshipment and we get the 3.4m mark.



So it is happening...PS4 preorder.

Greatness Awaits!

but you know that these are shipped numbers and not produced numbers, right?

Sony switched to reporting shipped numbers at the start of PS3 gen



So is there a good chance VGC is even more under tracked than previously thought?

 

Did they announce total shipments?



PS3 should be a little bit shy of 78M
