Surprise surprise – PlayStation3 delayed in Europe September 6, 2006

Posted by rockysays in general, news, videogames.

Well spank me silly with a wiry brush – just days after the launch of the official European PS3 website, Sony have announced that us poor unfortunates in Europe won’t be getting our grubby hands on their new wonder box until March next year. According to Sony, the delay is due to problems with “the mass production schedule of the blue laser diode within the Sony Group, thus affecting the timely procurement of key components to be utilised in PlayStation 3”. The North American and Japanese launches are still due to go ahead this November though. My guess it that Sony want to make sure they’ve got enough consoles for the States and Japan, and the most obvious way to do that is to continue their long held tradition of shafting European gamers. Why don’t Sony just hand over the European games market to Microsoft now, and save embarassment later?!
