Console Post of the Week (Mini)

This is definitely a mini-post, because I haven't seen much of interest this week, but there was one little nugget in Sony's Q2 earnings report.

In the last fiscal year, they sold (to retailers) 9.24 million units of the PS3. For this fiscal year, they forecast 10 million units.

Right now, they're almost two million units ahead of the first two quarters of FY2007. To only ship 10 million units for the year, they'll have to significantly underperform Q3 and Q4 of FY 2007. So they're either sandbagging the number, or their internal projections are very weak. That's definitely something to keep an eye on.
