BD Not only thing Holding up PS3 | PS3Blog.net
Taking a look at the HDMI slide shown at the PS3 business briefing, something pops out at me.
The HDMI specification that the PS3 will be using won’t be released until June 2006. Maybe all this talk of BD (Blu-ray Disc) being the reason for the PS3’s delay is just part of the story. (Or, to be more accurate, it’s the AACS system BD and HD DVD will use that’s the problem.)
So we have both HDMI and AACS slowing down the PS3’s release. Ah well, at least it gives Sony some time to polish the heck out of the thing.
