    The proverbial shit will hit the fan very very soon (in the next hour or so)

    Can you guess what it is?

    Should we all club together and see if we can buy the company? The share price is gonna plummet if this actually happens ;o

    PS3 delay? Come on, what's the goss? [​IMG]

    As much as having the PS3 out on time will be good for competition I just can't help but hate Sony as a company. So if the PS3 is delayed till next year I'd be the first to laugh. $999, jesus just make it cost one more dollar and it'll cost a grand, they're nuts.

    Japanese homes are to be reduced size by 10% rendering them unable to store a PS3?

    P$3 delayed in Europe and Australia till March 2007

    And my local EB Games just put up posters for the PS3 with Nov 17th printed on them last week. Lol, they're not going to be happy.

    There are going to be some seriously pissed people who put down a £150 deposit on one.

    But honestly who didn't see something like this coming, it was either a delay or a serious shortage.

    if the Wii comes out in europe by the end of 2006 (as they're saying) and it sells, well this european delay of the ps3 could be really a shoot in the foot for sony.

    Europe is a key territory for Sony - they have a much bigger share of the market over here, so I'm suprised they've delayed it.
    But then again... it's not too supprising 'cos Sony is in a big mess atm.
    Regardless the delay is pretty bad news, several places had been taking preorders since the £425 pricepoint was announced and whilst other gaming machines have sucessfully launched in the Easter holidays, parents might find it hard to cough up a massive £425 for an Easter present. Not only that but Toshiba launch their HD-DVD player in Europe in November giving HD a big head start over Blu-Ray.

    Saying that though, if anyone thinks Sony will crumble this generation though then they're wrong. The PS3 will be sucessful... how sucessful we'll just have to see.

    This is a big opportunity for Nintendo in that market. I think most people that REALLY wanted an XB360 already got one, and Nintendo will be the only one with a new console available for Christmas.

    Wha... 830$+ price tag?

    I guess the executives were actually serious about the PS3 being "too cheap".

    The devil probably will demand more than one soul now when you ask him for this piece of hardware.

    Ah hahahaha! [​IMG]

    Well well Sony you sure know how to piss off the public don't you? I can forsee a few extra 360 sales in light of this announcement.

    What do you have in store for your next announcement Sony? A re-structured price plan? [​IMG]

    How do you know for sure that PS3 will be succesful?

    There isn't one cell in my body that feels only slightly attracted to this machine, but hey those are my cells [​IMG]
