They are still sticking by their guns and saying they will still ship 4 million PS3 by the end of year 2006 and another 2 million by March of 2007 but, they haven't even started building them yet
Sony intends for things to be different when the PlayStation 3 is released on November 11 in Japan and November 16 in North America. When Sony announced the launch date and price for its next-generation console, it said that it would ship 4 million consoles by year end and another 2 million by March 31, 2007.

Last week, we learned that manufacturing has yet to begin on the PS3. Despite that, and contrary to rumors that Sony plans to lower its aim on shipments, the company still plans to have 2 million PS3s available on November 11 and is sticking to its guns on the end-of-year target of 4 million consoles. In a statement, the company reiterated that it is "still on schedule to ship 2 million units for our mid-November 2006 launch and additional 2 million units by the end of the year for a total of 4 million units."
