Sony Playstation 3 coming up this week

Posted by Ravi on November 6, 2006

The time is finally here. Sony would have launched their Playstation 3 gaming console after years of development later this week.

The console is coming after 6 years of launch of the Playstation 2 gaming console and this time it would have formidable competition in the form of Microsoft Xbox 360 and Nintendo Wii.

Interestingly, the PS3 is the most expensive of the three and claims its superiority on the basis of supplied equipment and hardware.

The company is facing serious production problems and is only expected to ship around 100,000 PS3 consoles for the launch in Japan this Saturday.

And market analysts have no doubt that these units will sell out in little time. Sony would be launching the PS3 in the US market on November 17 with around 400,000 units.

The company has also maintained its forecast to ship six million PS3s worldwide by March 2007.
