PS3 = 2007 in US

It's official guys.

1UP has the scoop.

Quote:
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.

There aren't many details out right now, but Sony says copy protection technology related to their Blu-ray disc drive is the cause of the delay.
Way to hand the generation to Microsoft, Sony, way to go.

Thanks Reed and joruussuun for the link. And thanks to Borys for breaking the news before 1up.

Bloody hell, it's as if Sony didn't bother to turn up to the first half of a sports game, and just let the opposition run in points unopposed.

One good point for Sony, if they do wait until 2007 to realease the thing, they could make it much more powerful than the 360. Well, in the graphics department anyways.

Not sure where you got the info Borys but for some reason I trust you on this one. Sad news indeed.

Doesn't bother me... Just means that this generation is well staggered. One year for the 360, one year for the Revolution, one year for the PS3, and two years before the next XBOX. Hell, I like it.

Well, after all we HAVEN'T seen from Sony, I wouldn't be suprised if this is true.

A little shocking to hear this, but not really a surprise, at least this should allow the move to put blue-ray into the PS3 and not cost an astronomical amount, given it still will be expensive, but not the 500+ that I saw flying around. On a side note, me being more of an *** fanboy then a Sony fanboy, Halo 3 delayed to 07?

If this is true, it doesn't necessarily mean all that much. It depends on what developers have up their sleeve for Fall release on the 360. So far from what I've seen, there isn't anything that has mass mainstream appeal on the 360 that is going to drive sales. They don't seem have a very diversified lineup. Very few "kid oriented" type games, and no GTA type of game with wide appeal. FPS are not going to win over the entire public. Not even Halo.

Wow. Just wow. I really thought they'd hit holiday season in the US. That's a HUGE loss for Sony.

If this is true, then Sony needs to prep itself for the next-gen Ban Hammer.

1UP has the story...
Looks like Borys was right... well November in Japan is all that is confirmed, so probably 2007 here in the States. (Man where do you get your info Borys? You were at least a half hour before I saw this anywhere else on the net.)
