Sony Says PS3 Sales to Top 11 Million by End of Fiscal Year

In a newpaper interview, Kaz "Riiiidge Racer" Hirai tells Yomiuri Shimbun that the worldwide sales of the PLAYSTATION 3 are expected to reach 11 million by the end of this fiscal year.

The PS3 "is starting afresh as a console to play games with. Although pricing strategy is important, now we would like to put our strength in the number of software games," Hirai said.

Hirai told the Yomiuri he would like to see Sony's game division "escape as soon as possible from the red and return to the black in fiscal year 2008."
