SAN JOSE, CA, March 22, 2006 (PodTech News) — Sony has announced that it will launch its highly anticipated PlayStation 3 video game console in November. The company says it expects the adoption rate of its newest products to exceed earlier versions of its consoles. The research firm In-Stat reported earlier this week that Sony would continue to control the video console market for the next four years.
“The production capacity for PlayStation 3 will ramp faster than PlayStation 1 and PlayStation 2 with over one million units per month,” said Phil Harrison, President of Sony Computer Entertainment’s Worldwide Studios in a keynote speech delivered at the Game Developer Conference. “The full spectrum of display devices will be supported from PAL, NTSC, standard definition, to full HD 1080 progressive.”
