Default PS3 Launch Outsells Xbox 360 Launch

Kotaku comments on Sony's 1M shipped announcement.

Quote:
Sony today announced that they have sold 1 million Playstation 3s in North America since the launch of the console six weeks ago.

That makes the Playstation 3 the fastest selling home console Sony has ever launched.

They said they have shipped 1 million PS3s, many many of which are on collecting dust on store shelves still.

Right next to the 2 million 360s collecting dust.

You mean the 360s that have been out for over a year now, and weren't able to be found this readilly in stores until 5 months after its launch? You mean the system that's now sold 10.4 million systems?

That system??

Yes, you know that system that took nearly 4 months to ship as much as PS3 did in less than 2.

Not a hard task when you're only shipping to two countries.

They are sitting there because they have shipped so many. If they had only shipped 500k units it would be sold out everywhere. Sony had there act together and shipped out like they said. 1 million units.

"The numbers don't quite add up though, with Sony only yesterday announcing that it shipped one million PlayStation 3 consoles to North America in 2006. According to Adams' figures, that puts 600,000 units sitting around in retail waiting to be sold. There's also the stumbling block of determining just how many PlayStation 3 owners will use their console as a Blu-ray player."

That argument doesn't really work considering 360 in Japan sold so poorly, it's almost like it never launched there.
