Sorce Dow Jones:

14-Mar-06 12:28 ET In Play Sony to delay the release of its PlayStation 3 next-generation video game console - DJ (SNE) 47.48 +0.71: Dow Jones reporting that Sony Computer Entertainment will delay the release of its PlayStation 3 next-generation video game console until early November because the copy protection technology for the Blu-ray Disc has not been finalized, The Nihon Keizai Shimbun reported in its Wednesday morning edition.


The PS3 competing with a lower priced XBox 360 next holiday dosn't look good for Sony. And that's assuming release in the US. The Nov. release could be Japan only with a US/Europe release in '07. Either way, this looks great for Microsoft.

I dout that the PS3 will not be released in the US before the end of this year, My guess is Sept for the system in the US. But honestly no one knowns other then Sony and these stupid analyst are just rumor spreaders... they are rarely right on any matter...

In short, lets wait till tomorrow. Sony has opened its License Only Meeting to the Press... which means there is something big coming up.

I'm still buying Sony for the reason that I enjoy all of thier consoles thus far, while most people who buy Xbox buy it because they saw it on MTV. :rolleyes:

Hey, I bought the Xbox because there are some great games releasing on it, that is the same reason I buy my Sony and Nintendo consoles.

Disappointing that my x360 hasn't gotten much play lately though, too much DDO.

You've never heard of a thing called humour? It's sad actually that they're not releasing the console this summer, but at least I'll gain a few $ for winning a bet a friend and I put up! Heh and he was so sure it was coming out before October... :D

Well there are other news media coming out of Japan saying the same thing. But you're right, tomorrow we will have official word one way or the other.

Today, Sony officially conceded defeat to the recent flurry of rumors and speculation, with Japanese newspaper Nihon Keizai Shimbun reporting the company has confirmed the machine has been pushed back until November.

It's not humor, he really believes that. Fanboy blinders have prevented him from realizing people buy the 360 because it's an awesome system with great games.

LMAO... i'm not talking about "you guys". I'm talking about in general, the people who play Xbox360 are mostly a bunch of spoiled kids who saw it on MTV. You know thats true ;)

Have you guys seen the sales for February? The PS2 sold twice the number of 360 consoles and the PS2 is still making a killing in Japan. They don't need the ps3 to compete with the 360 because they are already winning.

360 sales are limited by inventory at the moment, not demand.

My main concern is that if the delay is big, it doesn't drag NVDA stock down too much. Today, a little after noon, a story came out saying that the PS3 was delayed. Both Sony and NVDA stock took a hit but NVDA mostly recovered while SNE ended down for the day. I'm back in NVDA stock for the moment in my 401k and was hoping it would be up in the 50's before I sell again.

Not official until Sony says so at 1:00am EST in a Tokyo press conference. Latest reports are that there will be a near simultaneous release in Japan, Europe, and the U.S. So, I think as long as it is a worldwide release before the end of the year, Sony will be ok.

Except that in Japan, there isn't even the slightest invetory problem

If they do that, there will be a massive shortage of consoles so we better get those preorders super early.
