Sony Computer Entertainment CEO Kaz Hirai takes the longer view on PS3 sales, saying he expects most PS2 users to make the switch.

Hirai said that his company "know[s] that most PS2 consumers will transition over to the PS3" and said it's "fantastic" if consumers keep using the PS2 because of its high profitability.

The PS2 has a massive install base of 130 million users.

He said that PS3 sales were not "an all or nothing proposition" because some people using the PS2 today - years after initial release - will buy a PS3 next year and can be expected to buy new software for their new console.
