Ken Kutaragi has announced – at Sony’s “2006 PlayStation Business Briefing” – that the PS3 will be launching simultaneously in North America, Europe, and Asia come early November. Other tidbits, the PS3 will be 100% backwards compatible (legacy titles played will be displayed in HD resolutions), have full Blu-Ray support, and an HDMI connection.

In addition, Sony will release “one million units per month [after launch; sorry for any confusion this may have caused] with a total of six million units in 2006 alone. Production numbers are higher for PS1 and PS2 in their initial years.”
