Default Whatever happened to those 180 PSN Games by March 08?

Hey everyone, I'm a PS3 supporter but this kinda pisses me off now that I remembered. Back at E3 '07, Kaz Hirai made the bold statement of 200 retail games and 180 PSN games released by March 2008. I looked at my XMB and have bought a grand total of 6 PSN games so far and I can't think of all that many that have been released. Is there anyway that Sony is on track to meet these numbers? I highly doubt they are past 100 downloadable titles at this point. I find this frustrating that Sony has once again promised things they can not fulfill. I wish they would start punishing themselves if they are wrong such as Phil Harrison saying "If Little Big Planet isn't out by the end of 2007, I won't shave my head or face for a year". At least it would be a little bit satisfying when they are wrong over and over.

Your thread title has a tense issue.

That is suppose to be 40 PSN games in Noth America and 105 PS3 retail (boxed) titles (145 total).

So far, I've counted over 120 titles out now. They are close.

Aside from the tense issues, the counting is a bit off as well. There's about 30 PSN games.

That was stated by KK right? Like all the other crazy and just outright wrong crap he flung out. Probably why he's no longer around. I think its shitty he's not personally. I mean its not like he made that call alone, i'm sure Sony as a whole just wanted to whore bluray onto the market anyway possible, so why not use their trophy gaming biz.

It was Kaz Hirai that announced this at E3 2007 and the actual numbers he claimed were over 200 retail games and 180 PSN games for download.

I knew it was ludicrous to begin with but I figured if he had to balls to make that proclamation then they might at least get close. At the current rate I doubt if there will be that many PSN games by 2009.

Where did you pull your numbers WellInformed? I haven't seen anything remotely resembling what you stated and I'm a major nerd when it comes to PS3 related news.

You have links. He doesn't. Nuff said.

It's not unlikely that they can still meet that goal. There were 60 PSN games out worldwide in June (7 months after release), and there are still 3 months to go and several PSN games have come out since June.
