Harrison ‘Some Consumers Will Be Disappointed’

Many sites are reporting that at an intimate lunch with a small selection of guests, Sony’s Phil Harrison today conceded that not everyone who wants a PlayStation 3 will be able to get one at launch. (Why weren’t we invited Phil?)

Harrison said, “You can see from our history that Sony Computer Entertainment has been very effective matching consumer demands with supply. But some consumers will be disappointed — that is an inevitability of a hardware launch. But, in terms of our manufacturing, we have a faster ramp-up than we’ve ever had before.
