Boo. If 1 million is going to go to the US, we can most probably expect 100000 consoles here in the UK. Boo. They havent even started production yet.

If I could get two consoles, I will put one on ebay and make a tidy profit. Trying to hoard as much cash as possible at the moment. Preordered from 4 places at the moment.

Send them to argentina and either let my family there sell them (consoles at retail price there are insane) or let them give them to their kids. If anything I can always return them. :p

Think I will wait until the buzz dies down, like with the 360 and just about everything else I buy. Great picking up a console when there's more game choice and the exclusive big games not far off.

Isn't that a bit immoral? Somebody has the work for that extra money that you are making for doing no work.

guys, this is a misunderstanding.

they corrected the orginal article...

UPDATE: Following the publication of 1UP's story this afternoon, Sony contacted us to clarify a few points, especially considering our speculative commentary at the end.
"Unfortunately Kaz Hirai's comments in the recent GameSpot interview regarding PLAYSTATION 3 production were misunderstood. We are still on schedule to ship 2 million units for our mid-November 2006 launch and additional 2 million units by the end of the year for a total of 4 million units," said a Sony spokesperson.

How can you say it's a misunderstanding when it clearly says two million consoles for the mid-November release in the article, and the title of this thread says the exact same thing? I think everyone knows there will be more, especially for christmas. ;)

no no no, orginallly the article said 2 million for the year. this is saying 2 million for launch, and 2 million for the holiday season...which is, 4 million.

im talking about the gamespot article, which the OP article is sourcing from.

BWAHAHAHAHAHAH. 4 Million. Oh Sony, when will you ever learn to STFU. At least Sony won't have me by the balls until MGS4 comes out.

I'd be surprised if they even got 1,000,000 shipped by the end of the year. And impressed too since Sony's management seems painfully incompetent every time they open their mouth. Too many old people believing their own hype.

I don't know what he's smoking but according to this story: http://www.theinquirer.net/default.aspx?article=33813

They haven't even started manufacturing yet. I have never heard of a company making 1,000,000 consoles a month, as I recall everyone was impressed when Microsoft managed 300,000 X-boxes a month. I'd say the 2 million number is more likely, even then, that's more than I remember being made by anyone else...

Doesnt Sony have more manufacturing plants than microsoft, ones they even own themselves instead of going through a middleman? They own the Cell and blu-ray plants. The only plants they dont own are the rights to the RSX, and nvidia has said before they have been ready to ship to sony.

to put it in perspective, 1.5 million 360's were shipped at launch IIRC, and manufacturing began 70 days before launch. its down to like day 87 or somthing before ps3 launches. factor in sony can probably make more in a given time period, i think it will be doable. it will be close, but i think they can make it.

I'm still waiting on a remark from Kaz Hirai or Mr. "Riiiidge Racerrrr!" Kutaragi retconning this whole not-in-production-yet thing. The year ends in four months and nine days...and they really expect to ship four million PSgrills starting production when, next week? Next month? Methinks SCEA/J should change its name to Sony Computer Entertainment Medellin...

Might as well. Could make a tidy profit if you sold them on.

Just wondering... if I wanted to do something similar, how would I go about it?

Are there places doing pre-orders? Or are you just saving up right now?
