PS3 Delayed to November? | PS3Blog.net
Today, Sony officially conceded defeat to the recent flurry of rumors and speculation, with Japanese newspaper Nihon Keizai Shimbun reporting the company has confirmed the machine has been pushed back until November.
There aren’t many details out right now, but Sony says copy protection technology related to their Blu-ray disc drive is the cause of the delay.
As the news is coming out of Japan, that creates a worrisome scenario for America and Europe. There was already rumblings Sony wouldn’t be able to launch in all territories before the end of the year, but missing out on the Christmas season over here could prove a deadly blow to Sony’s next-generation plans.
Not an official source. But maybe it’s true. In which case we’ll probably find out for sure tomorrow.
But it does seem fishy. If they can release BD players on May 23rd, why can’t they release the PS3?
