Playstation 2 supply shortage

In order to meet the overwhelming demand for the PlayStation 2 computer entertainment system worldwide, Sony Computer Entertainment Inc. is ramping up production capacity from 400,000 units a month to more than one million units a month in the fall, with a further increase to 1.4 million units by the end of 2000. Due to a components supply shortage, the company is tracking approximately one month behind in production. This is not expected to impact the previously announced worldwide fiscal year 2001 PlayStation 2 shipment figures.

Twenty-six software titles will be available at launch on October 26, with more than 50 titles released in time for the holidays. Additionally, 270 titles are currently in development for PlayStation 2 and 301 content developers and publishers are signed-up to create titles for the system, accounting for most of the software development community. Combine the more than 800 PlayStation titles currently available with the ability to play this library on PlayStation 2, and the new system boasts the broadest software catalog ever created.

"We are confident that in light of the huge installed base of the original PlayStation, now available in one out of every three U.S. households, combined with the ability to play the existing PlayStation software catalog, the PlayStation 2 launch in North American will prove to be an unrivaled success, truly demonstrating the company's innovation and leadership as the driving force behind computer entertainment."

Four years later He replies again... And XBOX is the best. Seamless online gaming, a huge library of quality games, unlike the ps2, and many promising future titles. Fear the power of the XBOX.Oh and BTW PS2 Master is a real newbie, thinking that ps2 is much better than a PC. PC's beat all consoles. And also, NONE of you can spell worth shit. Saying things like "consoule" and "liek". Learn to spell.[url removed]

Devolpers are like cigar stores they can be bought and sold. Xbox will never buy out the the big N and when will you get a sony console that wont break after a year after payin 300 for it. games concoles are for playin games not for playin dvds ect , argue all uses want about the best console but while uses are im playin ,zelda , metriod, mazza, 1080, waverace, mario kart , pikimin , F zero,Battalion Wars , nintendogs pokoman theres somthin for everyone , they are a few games out that are not on the cube i like pro evo but i got that on an importps. sony only enterd the gaming world cause they stole nintys idea for a cd games concole there controllers still look like a snes one well out dated The Future is and always the Big N. peace
