PS3 Still on for This Year


PS3Contrary to rumours from analysts that the PS3 will be delayed to 2007, Sony has said that the PS3 will launch in 2006. Missing from the statement is the word “spring”. Hmmmm….

Sony officials have stated that the PlayStation 3 is still on track to be launched in 2006, despite widespread rumors reported elsewhere that the system would slip back to a 2007 date. The system made another non-playable appearance at the Taipei Game Show, where Sony Computer Entertainment Asia managing director Tetsuhiko Yasuda confirmed that while the system has no set release date or price yet, it will be released later in 2006. One thing that seems nearly certain, however, is that the system will not meet its original plan for a spring 2006 release, given that no playable games have yet surfaced.
