Sony Pledges 11,000+ PS3’s Produced Per Day

It seems the first-part of our earlier posted rumor of PS3 production has turned out to be false (though the second part was true). Sony has officially announced the PS3 will not go into production until the end of September.

That gives roughly a month and a half to produce and ship the 500,000 units they plan to have available in the US and Japan on the release of November 17, requiring a production rate of greater than 11,000 units per day (or 450 per hour, or one just about every 10 seconds). Any production hiccups that delay production by even a day or two at this point could obviously have huge implications to little Bobby’s Christmas List this year (might want to start talking up the Wii now, parents, if you haven’t already).
