This is true information from a very credible source:

The PS3 is scheduled to launch in North America this Friday, November 17. Sony has previously said it expects to have 400,000 systems available for consumers but has not said how many of those will be the 60GB version of the hardware.

I don't get you PS people. It is clear that Xbox and the 360 are superior machines. The PS3 doesn't even offer a vibrating controller. That kicks ass on Madden

true im skipping the whole PS3 thing and getting Wii. Im sick of all the first person shooters and dark and gloomy games for a bit. Although I will prob pick up GOW soon. I miss the platform games like Zelda, MArio, Sonic and Smash Brothers. So i think I will pick up Wii and try to enjoy games again.

They'll probably be playing CoD3 and Resistance (which is apparently a great title)

Whoever made up these figures could have done a better job:

Quote:
400,000 to North America

100,000 to Canada

100,000 to Mexico,Puerto Rico

200,000 to USA

Canada's population: about 32 million, America's population: more than 300 million

On top of this Americans have higher purchasing power and are more into electronics. And you're telling me that they expect to only sell double in the USA of what they sell in Canada? No.

And don't get me started on Mexico and Puerto Rico

The local retailer near me was originally getting a total of about 12-14 PS3. Just found out today they're only getting 2 of each. But they're gonna have 54 Wiis on launch night.

The average Canadian is far more tech savvy then the average American. Canada's have the highest per capita % of people in the world with high speed internet connection. To also say that Americans have more purchasing power is sheer ignorance. Don't discount Canada because of sheer ignorance, you won't find too many run-down ghetto's their large cities are embraced, not decaying due to a flight to the suburbs. I'd be willing to bet any money there's more people per capita in Canada in a position to buy the PS3 then the USA, that's a given.
