i) Press release announcing - Sony Computer Entertainment America announces
                              Playstation(R)3 Hits One-Million Mark in
                              North America


     Momentum for the PlayStation(R)2 Computer Entertainment System and the
  PSP(R) (PlayStation(R)Portable) Handheld Entertainment System Remain Strong

LAS VEGAS, January 8, 2007 - At the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2007 in Las
Vegas, Sony Computer Entertainment America (SCEA) today announced that more than
one million units of its recently launched PLAYSTATION(R)3 (PS3(TM)) computer
entertainment system have shipped in North America to retailers. The company
successfully achieved this milestone by the end of the 2006 calendar year, just
six weeks after the product was introduced on November 17, 2006.

PS3 has been selling-out at retail outlets across North America since it was
launched. This high consumer demand drove PS3 to reach the one-million mark
before its predecessors, the PlayStation(R)2 computer entertainment system and
the original PlayStation game console - both systems combined have shipped more
than 200 million units of hardware and more than two billion units of software

"SCEA went to great lengths to help meet demand for PS3, including airlifting
systems into North America on a weekly basis to ensure a steady stream of units
were available to consumers throughout the holiday season," said Jack Tretton,
president and CEO, SCEA. "The fact that we were able to reach the one-million
mark faster than our top-selling platform, PS2, further validates the strength
of the PlayStation brand and our belief that consumers are ready to experience
true high-definition gaming."

PS3 wasn't the only hot gift this holiday season; the PlayStation 2 computer
entertainment system continues to enjoy record-breaking sales in North America.
In the first quarter of 2007, PS2 will continue to fuel industry growth with the
highly anticipated release of the MLB 07 The Show(TM) and God of War(R) II

Consumer demand for the PSP(R) (PlayStation(R)Portable), the company's popular
handheld entertainment system, also remained strong this past year. New software
releases continued PSP's momentum in offering console-quality gaming on-the-go,
from key franchises such as SOCOM: U.S. Navy SEALs Fireteam Bravo 2 to
award-winning original IP such as LocoRoco(TM). SCEA also drove interest in the
PSP system via expanded entertainment capabilities, including TiVoToGo(TM),
which enables PSP owners to watch television programming transferred from their
TiVo wherever, whenever; support for video podcasts broadcasted through Really
Simple Syndication (RSS) feeds; and a Remote Play feature for streaming media
content (music, videos and photos) from a PS3 to a PSP.

"Reaching the one million mark for PS3 is the first of many major milestones for
us as we head into a new year. Even more impressive, is that we were able to
accomplish this feat while successfully managing two other platforms-PS2 and
PSP," said Tretton. "With three PlayStation platforms now available to users,
2007 will be about software and delivering innovative, new experiences and
award-winning franchises to consumers, both through retail and through our
online PLAYSTATION(R)Network."

PlayStation-branded entertainment and gaming content that will be shown in the
Sony booth at CES 2007, includes:

     MLB 07 The Show(TM) - PS3, PSP
     MotorStorm(TM) - PS3
     Lair - PS3
     Heavenly Sword(TM) - PS3
     Gran Turismo(TM) HD Concept - PS3 Downloadable
     Ratchet & Clank(R): Size Matters - PSP
     Killzone(TM): Liberation - PSP
     SOCOM: U.S Navy SEALs Fireteam Bravo 2 - PSP

Other features on display will include "Remote Play" for PS3, which allows the
consumer to utilize their PSP to access content on their PS3 hard drive,
including movies, television shows, videos and music. A full demonstration of
the PLAYSTATION(R)Network, and PLAYSTATION(R)Store for PS3, as well as Location
Free TV(TM) for PSP, will also be shown.
