New Poll: Will the PS3 be Late?
I’m almost tempted to think Sony won’t make the anticipated spring 2006 PlayStation 2 launch. Reports from left, right, and skyward all say that there’s no way Sony can make it. Like this report from the Inquirer (see link below). But wait a second, if you actually read the article, it says that they don’t expect the PS3 to come out until at least May. May is spring, isn’t it? As a matter of fact, most of June is in spring as well. Hmmm.
I was reading the IGN forums the other day and someone pointed out that the PS2 didn’t have playable demos until one month before launch! Companies like Microsoft like to give lots of details before launching a product. Other companies like Apple and Sony like to keep their little secrets. For example, it was rumoured that Apple would be releasing Intel iBooks at MacWorld Expo. Instead, they announced Intel iMacs and Intel MacBook Pros. Surprise! Sony is the same way. We don’t know what’s going on in there, and we probably won’t until the PS3 is upon us.
Though I’m growing more and more skeptical, I’m also still a little hopeful.
So I’ve changed the poll in the sidebar. Vote now!
