Sony PS3 at CES 2006
[From PS Boards]
Sony announces launch plans for japan only and then in E3 06 they will anounce U.S launch plans for the Fall. So there is a margin of doubt they will do a worldwide release in spring 06.
But Sony has a LOT of other things to present, more than Playstation 3.
It’s possible (and probable) that Playstation 3 won’t be presented at all.
Anyway, many news are reporting about the 360 having flopped in Japan. Well…
Xbox 360 isn’t a bad console, but Sony has a lock on Japan. They aren’t worried there.
Then, after all this chatting about the 360 and PS3 war, it looks like Nintendo beated out Sony this year. The DS was #1 above the PSP and even the PS2.
I wouldn’t count Nintendo out of the game yet.
It’s a different market, yeah, portables don’t have to compete with consoles.
But Nintendo is an experienced family. Let’s see :)
