Playstation 3 far from Complete? |

PS3the INQUIRER is reporting that there are problems getting the PS3 complete. No specific problem, really, just a general behind-schedule-ness.

We are about six months from launch, and debugging should be done, prototypes and dev kits should flow like water, and all the tame magazines should already have one. The situation is rather different though, they are nowhere, and there are two related reasons behind this.

The first is size. People tell us that the current PS3s are about 50% too large to fit in the sleek but empty boxes they have been showing off. This is a problem, but a solvable one, electronics always get smaller. Time solves all, and there is still time, just not much.

More troubling to me is that Sony is still bidding on components for the boxes. This means the development is far from final, and it will be debugging up to, and in a Microsoft overheating manner, past the last minute. Not a good sign.

I know I know – rumour is as a rumour does. But there are so many of these rumours flying around it makes me think that E3 can’t come soon enough.

    Those PS3 boxes r already rather large. Can’t image it any bigger. iBet its going to have a nice little power brick. Man, iCan’t wait to hear what those haters have to say who where making fun of the X360 if the PS3 uses one as well. That Cell & RSX has got to running @ temperatures as hot as the sun’s core to run in “4D”.

    If I compare the current design of PS3 to Xbox 360… I do prefer the streamlined design of X360… yeah including the X360 controller.
