Forums - Sony Discussion - So, now that we have seen Sony's hand do you think they'll...

75% in Japan (with FF13), hell yeah
75% in Europe(with GT5), tough call but acheivable
75% in USA (with the whole line up), maybe..........( or not )

@iblah

75% in any region... nope.

^^ * shrugs*

But I'm going to laugh all day on your wall if it happens in any region



 

@iblah

laugh all day on my wall.... why? I couldnt give a monkeys toss if they do or they dont... I have a life... unlike you it appears.

I just happen to believe, backed up with some mathematical logic and historical precedence, that they wont.

Yes, they will complete their goal of 13million units sold Worldwide this fiscal year.

Have you remembered of the possibility of Gran Turismo 5 being released this year? Don't forget Final Fantasy 13 being exclusive on the PlayStation 3 in Japan, that's when it will start selling like bananas.



Battlefield Bad Company 2 > Modern Warfare 2

Ok ok... can we just stop with this nonsense now...

To sell 11.9 million to reach the 13m this is required:

1.7 million each month for 7 months straight...

That is 392,307 EVERY WEEK on average for the REST of this financial year... you are having a laugh.

*sigh* why people on the Internet are so serious these days, just trying to be friendly or funny or whatever you call it, forgot I ever said anything then.



 

@iblah

um... somehow I still believe 75% increase can be done in Japan (lol...?!), but definitely not in US, if MS does nothing to " counter" Sony's pricecut and they manage to release GT5 before Chrismas then it will go gangbuster in EU, I don't really believe they could reach 13 millions goal in the first place, but I still think they have a chance in Europe, maybe they can go over 10 million if things are "smooth"



 

Q1. 1.1M ps3s sold (http://www.sony.net/SonyInfo/IR/financial/fr/09q1_eleki.pdf)
Lets assume each quarter is a perfect 13 weeks.

Remaining weeks = 39
Remaining sales estimated = 11.9M
Average per week = 305K

That seems a little high, even with big game spikes and christmas to come. The time already spent this quarter before the slim release also drags that average down. THe next earnings release will give us a better idea about how much. It might be doable if all games release on time.

 

Edit: According to Sony's IR for Q2,3,4 last year, they sold 8.5M PS3's.

Using the same 39 weeks, average per week was: 217K

So, do we expect sales to increase by a bit less than 50% year on year.
