80% of PS3s at Launch to be $600 Version

Last week Sony revealed that they would miss their initial target of 4 million units by the end of 2006 and instead would only manage 2 million units shipped by year’s end, roughly what Microsoft managed with the Xbox 360 last year. GameSpot reports that 80% of those units at launch will be of the $600 version of the PlayStation 3. “The split between premium (60GB) and core (20GB) units at US retail stores should be roughly 80/20 [percent],” Colin Sebastian of Lazard Capital Markets said.
