- Sony may have just reported
a decrease in quarterly PS3 sales but executives are still in good spirits.
Apparently, the Sony execs believe they are on the right track to meet previously announced goals despite the poor performance recently.
To quote: "In terms of units, it is true that PS3, as compared to last year, is slightly worse, but on a full-year basis we believe we are on track to sell the 10 million units that I said at the beginning of the year," said Sony EVP and CFO Nobuyuki Oneda
in an earnings call.
Sony announced earlier today that PS3 sold 4.46 million units during the company's fiscal Q3, a 9 percent drop from 4.9 million for the same quarter a year ago.
Oneda added, "...Relatively speaking, [compared to] the growth of other platforms, we are behind, but it's not the case that we are not meeting the target."
