European Nintendo Fanboys Rejoice! PS3 Now Due 2007!
Yes it's good news for all Nintendo Fanboys (like us) who are almost safe in the knowledge that they will be playing with their Wii (something about that still doesn't sound right) this year, a good four months (at least) ahead of the Sony clan's new console.
Sony have announced that the PlayStation 3 will not be coming out in Europe until March 2007, it will however be released in the US and Japan this year as previously announced.
This will also give Microsoft another Christmas period ahead of the PlayStation, and with the many lovely titles coming out for the Wii it doesn't seem like it will be missed.
Here's the press release:
Sony Computer Entertainment Europe Announces New March 2007 date for European Launch of PLAYSTATION 3
No change in launch date for Japan and North America
London, Wednesday 6 September 2006 - Sony Computer Entertainment Europe (SCEE) today announced that it would revise the launch date of its PLAYSTATION® 3 computer entertainment system in the PAL territories of Europe, Russia, Middle East, Africa and Australasia from 17th November 2006, as previously announced to March 2007.
Launch dates for Japan and North America will remain the same, which are November 11th and November 17th respectively.
The revision of the launch date in the SCEE territories is caused by 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.
The previously announced PLAYSTATION 3 shipment forecast of 6 million units globally within the fiscal year ending 2007 is not changed.
