Sony US still on course for 1 million PS3 target

The company has said that it "couldn’t be more pleased” with the console’s launch in the territory last Friday, and that new systems will be airlifted in every week until Christmas.
In a statement, Sony's head of corporate communications David Karraker said: “PS3s will be airlifted in to the US on a weekly basis through the end of the year. A new shipment has already arrived and will be available at retail by Black Friday (December 1st)."

Karraker also confirmed that biggest selling game of the PS3 launch was Resistance: Fall of Man and that the 60GB PS3 outsold the cheaper 20GB model.

The full statement reads: ‘Sony Computer Entertainment America couldn’t be more pleased with the response we have seen from consumers since the launch of PlayStation 3 on Friday. This truly demonstrates the power of the PlayStation brand and further validates our belief that consumers see real value in an entertainment system that will define the next decade of digital entertainment.

‘At this point, we are focused on getting as many new PS3s to the North American market as possible for the holidays, including airlifting systems to the territory on a constant basis. With PS3 manufacturing now running smoothly and product being aired in weekly, we're focused on our goal of shipping a million units to retail by the end of the calendar year. Due to the immediate nature of these shipments, we will not be providing weekly updates on North American supplies.
