GC LEIPZIG: Sony forecasts 140 million PlayStations in PAL by 2010

Publish date:

SCEE boss David Reeves has told an excited Leipzig crowd that Sony expects over 140 million PlayStation systems to be installed in PAL territory homes by 2010.

The figure – which is greater than the entire population of Japan – is made up of consumers who had a PSOne, PS2 or PS3 in their homes.

Before announcing new hardware add-ons for PS3 and PSP, Reeves added that PS3 had enjoyed an impressive tie ratio of 2.6 in Europe and that both Resistance: Fall of Man and Motorstorm had sold over 500,000 copies each in the EU.
