RUMOR: European PS3 launch only in September?

December 13, 2006

Oops, I did it again, sang Britney Spears at the height of her career. I’m pretty sure the same thing could be sung by Sony leaders too, because they seem to be doing it again (first with the PSP delay). Rumors suggest that the PS3 will not come out until September in Europe, instead of the planned March release. Why? Because Sony can’t seem to manufacture enough parts for the PS3 to deliver a sufficient amount (like, 15, as with Japan and North America).

This is getting ridiculous. Lik-Sang is closed down, thanks to Sony. The PSP came out about one year later in Europe than in Japan. Now this?

Sony can’t seem to realize that by doing this, it will seriously hurt them when they finally do launch. The 360 and Wii will be well on track, and will have a huge fan and user base that the PS3 may not be able to overcome. Not to mention the slap on the face for the fans, who have patiently waited and did not buy another console since they are waiting for a PS3.

*sigh* Let’s just hope, for Sony’s sake, that these are rumors, and the PS3 will launch in March 2007.
