Sony details production for PS2
It has been discovered that due to the attempts to cut costs and produce the Playstation 2 console at a faster rate, possibly as much as 30% of production will go to Taiwanese companies, Hon Hai Precision Industry Ltd, Asustek Computer Inc and Yageo Inc, Goldman Sachs Group.
What is expected to be an interesting holiday season, Sony hopes to increase profits as they continue to predict their 20 million units shipment goal for the month of March. If plans go as scheduled, Taiwanese companies would be producing 6 million of the 20 million PS2ís annually.
Also announced, Sony expects to cut suppliers in Japan by 60%, in hopes of discovering cheaper parts in China, Taiwan and Malaysia. Stay tuned as we bring you the latest news.
