Sony Blames Software for Poor Console Sales

The PlayStation 3 sales declined by almost 50,000 units between March and April. Dave Karraker, Sony Computer Entertainment America's Sr. Director of Corporate Communications, attributed the poor results "to a lack of new software in the market," pointing to games like Heavenly Sword and Uncharted: Drake's Fortune as heavy hitters meant to spur sales in 2007. May doesn't look any better: there are only two May PS3 games: Surf's Up and Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End. Both are multi-platform releases. Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot told the Reuters news service a price drop was in order: "For sure Sony will have a different market share ... lower than before. They have to decrease the price quite significantly." Will Sony listen?
