Default PS3 Delayed in the UK

Sony Computer Entertainment Europe has announced that the release date for PlayStation 3 in PAL territories has been pushed back until March 2007.

In an official statement, Sony said the decision to revise the launch date was taken following "the delay in 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."

Gamers in Europe, Russia, the Middle East, Africa and Australasia will now have to wait until March to get their hands on a PS3. However, the console is still on track to launch in Japan on November 11 and in North America on November 17. Sony still plans to ship 6 million PS3 units globally before the end of the 2007 fiscal year.

Blue laser diodes are a key component of the PS3's Blu-Ray drive. Rumours of a shortage began to emerge just days ago, with reports suggesting that Sony had suspended shipment of the diodes to customers making standalone Blu-Ray players - but it would seem that wasn't enough to ensure there would be enough consoles to go round in November.

Sony's plans for a global launch in November were first announced by Ken Kutaragi back in March. The announcement came as a surprise to many industry observers who had predicted a staggered release schedule and a 2007 launch date for Europe - but at E3, SCEA president Kaz Hirai confirmed November release dates for all three territories.

News of the delay will no doubt please executives at Microsoft, which managed to pull off a global launch of the Xbox 360 last year. There were problems with hardware shortages but last month, Microsoft Europe boss Chris Lewis pledged that there will be no shortfall this Christmas - and with only the Nintendo Wii to compete against, MS could be set to clean up.

i lost interest in the PS3 when smackdown was delayed a year for it.

Whereas 360 has games i actually want to play. SMackdown, Saints Row, Dead Rising. Hell, i think i'd even prefer GTA IV on that system over PS3.

I am more bothered about:

1: The broken promises and denial of problems days before they delayed

2: Top executives contradicting each other (which one was lying?) about when production of PS3 had started, as this makes you suspicious about everything they say.

3: Stories of very poor yield of major components like the main CELL processor and RSX graphics processor... will this lead to the first batch of consoles being unstable ?

4: Many of the better games will be coming out for the xbox 360 too

5: The cost of the console and the additional hardware required to get the best out of it

So many gamers who have (or will) preorder such an expensive item, have done so based on the simple fact that they TRUST Sony as a brand... my trust in Sony has taken a real knock today.

Spot on, Dev

It's reasons like this that I'm glad I got an Xbox 360. Honestly, I didn't care which next-gen console I got, I just wanted a new system in the present. If I was a Sony person, I would still be waiting. I'm not and I'm playing awesome games right now, and a whole slew of should-be gems are on the horizon.

Honestly, when I read what you said it swayed me a bit. I might just buy an X-Box 360. Try and shify off my PS2 games though.

It’s really sad that Sony continue to shit on non Jap/US markets.

This will help Microsoft in those markets but only ever so slightly. Sony have done just enough t brain wash the mass market into believing that their “super duper blu ray reading Microsoft beating ” machine is the one to buy.

Fuck, will Sony ever quit blowing smoke up consumers asses.

Well I reckon PS2 ownzored Xbox. Thats why I was gonna get the PS3 over the 360 but Xbox seems to have improved considerably (especially the controller size) and PS3 is losing game rights and being delayed and just generally seems to be a fuck up fest so I might have to change alliance again. I started with nintendo originally till they brought out the cubic brick...I mean the game cube. Meh, maybe I'll go to the Wii if its not as gay as its name suggests.
