Sony prepared to ramp up PS3 production

The Sony Corporation have reportedly ordered enough components to enable them to manufacture around one million PlayStation 3 units during the final quarter of 2009. The UK’s Daily Telegraph reports that this is roughly double the number of consoles manufactured during the previous three months.

Even taking into account the holiday sales rush, doubling production suggests that Sony are poised to make an announcement surrounding the console that will lead to a surge in sales. This would either be a price cut, a new version of the console (such as the much-rumoured PS3 slim) or even both.

We expect all to be revealed at the imminent GamesCom conference in Cologne, Germany

Please stay tuned for more information as we get it.
