Ha ha...I wouldn't be impressed unless I knew what their "expectations" were.

i think they were expecting at least one more guy to buy the thing besides their CEO

Nah. I'm betting it will be just like the PS3 launch. Like the PS2 launch. Like the PS1 launch. And like all console launches really..

They start off with a stupidly large price, which only true technophiles can afford. Then they drop the price by a massive percentage and then normal people then start buying it. Expectations probably aren't that great if Sony had any realism built in. =P

They do have that Gran Turismo pack out now, so a lot of people could well be getting it, driving PSP3000 sales up.

On a side note, how did they come up with 3000?
