Sony Reportedly Orders 16 Million PlayStation 4 Consoles for First Year
Sony projects to sell 16 million PlayStation 4 video game consoles, presumably in the first year of availability, according to a report from DigiTimes web-site that cites sources from PS4 component makers. As expected, Sony intends to start production of its next-generation video game systems sometimes in August, 2013, which will make it possible e for the company to start actual sales of the PS4 consoles in late October – November timeframe.
Sony intends to contract Foxconn Technology Group (Hon Hai Precision Industries) and Pegatron Technology to make the PlayStation 4 game console. Sony will also likely use its own EMCS facility to build the systems.
Over 10 million game consoles are expected to be sold each quarter. That will come to about $450 million in new revenue once the PS4 and xbox 720 starts being produced. That is why AMD will show a profit in the 3rd quarter.
