    David Karraker, Sony's senior director of corporate commmunications, announced that despite the recent cutbacks, the launch will still feature more PS3s than Microsoft's Xbox 360 launch. In a recent interview with IGN, Karraker addresses a comment made by Sony President Ken Katarugi that North America would only see about 400,000 units for the November launch.
    "This is just below what we had available at launch for PS2 and is higher than what Microsoft had for Xbox 360. More importantly, in my mind, is that we will have 1 to 1.2 million units available by December 31 in North America."
    If these numbers are correct and Sony holds true to Karraker's statements, the "1 to 1.2 million units" would outstrip the X360's sales mark in that time period. Microsoft claims to have sold around 325,000 units at launch and 900,000 units by the end of 2005, so if we see 400,000 PS3s at launch and over a million by the end of this year, that would top Microsoft's numbers.
    More shipping info will likely surface as we get closer and closer to the official PS3 launch.

    its not %100 free, you do offers and buy stuff from sponsors liek a bottle of cortizone for 6 bucks which will get you one offer..so yeah, i guess sponsorship.

    Im holden out for the PS3 myself..... I've played the 360 at friends houses and for me I don't see alot of difference in game quality... granted some of the games are sick but I luv my XBOX's and the games I have are AWESOME for it, so I'm hard pressed to buy a 360, I'm gonna try out the PS3 before I buy it, but more then likely I will get one and maybe throw in a Wii to boot, since its only gonna be around $250

    That is a lot of units...shipped. But I don't hear many people that really want to pay the prices to own one. Its is good to have units available...but better to have a demand. I have yet to see a strong demand for them.

    Embrace diversity.....play both handhelds the way they weren't meant to be played!
