No more delays for PS3

Friday 13 October 2006
"Sony is committed to launching PlayStation 3 in Europe in March 2007," the tech giant has confirmed to GamesRadar, in response to rumours emerging that PlayStation 3 will suffer further delays in Europe.

The speculation stems from an article by Spanish gaming site, claiming that Sony president Ken Kutaragi has voiced fears that shortages of the next-gen console for its fast approaching launch in the US and Japan could force another delay to the European release of PS3, perhaps until May. However, "the rumour of a May release is completely false," Sony has confirmed to us.

While we wouldn't rule out another - potentially catastrophic - launch day delay, Sony must realise that yet more bad news for European gamers could cause irreparable damage to PS3's already tarnished image. Let's hope so, eh?
