Would You Buy a Game Console From These Guys??

real-ps3-front-2.jpgYou know that bad reputation that used car guys have.  They have it for a reason.  They don’t deliver on their promises and the customer usually feels taken for a ride.  So here comes Sony with their exploding batteries, proprietary formats and over-engineered & under-delivered PS3, making a claim that is truly hard to believe.  The same Sony that could not meet its launch target of 400,000 systems, is now reporting that all manufacturing issues have been overcome and the company is full on target to have a million systems shipped by the end of the year.  Really…. that’s straight from the mouth of Sony’s communications boss David Karraker…

While initial day-one launch shipment goals weren’t achievable due to early manufacturing issues, those problems have been resolved and we do remain focused on having one million PS3s in the pipeline by December 31, 2006.

Now, if you don’t read that carefully, you might get the impression that the availability is going to pick up by the end of the month.  “We do remain focused” means that this is our official position.  It may or may not be something they we actually accomplish.  “In the pipeline” may mean all the way back at the factory, waiting for blue diodes. 

So what what does that statement actually say.  Not much!!!  Sony may not be able to build great technology anymore, but they sure can spin.
