Gaming News: "What? It's doable."
Posted: Wednesday January 3rd, 2007 by

Research and Markets, a business analyst firm in Dublin, Ireland, released an examination of the gaming industry. Their research centered around the next gen foot race. One of their conclusions: Sony will sell 75 million PS3's worldwide by 2010. Source: Gamespot [ more info ]
Now, I don't want to seem doubtful. It's certainly possible. I mean the PS2 has sold over 110 million units; but, they did it in six years at half the price.

I'm also not certain that I'm qualified to disagree with "the world's largest market research resource". It's just a gut feeling.

Math: [edited for more accuracy and less "wow"]
((75 million - 1.2 million) / 3) / 52 = 473,077 consoles per week

And what IS the Irish for bullsh**t? "Tarbhcac" was the closest I could find but I figure that's just a bastardized, over-literal translation.
