European PlayStation 3 delayed until March 2007

September 6th, 2006 · 1 Comment

Sony has delayed the introduction of the PS3 into Europe until March 2007. In a statement the company says the delay has been caused by the shortages of the blue laser diode, a key component for the Blu-ray ready games console.
Also affected is the rollout for Russia, the Middle East, Africa and Australasia.  The launch dates for Japan and North America will remain the same, which are November 11th and November 17th respectively.
The previously announced PLAYSTATION 3 shipment forecast of 6 million units globally within the fiscal year ending 2007 is not changed.

    Good old Sony, a shining example of how to bodge things up.
