So, The PS3 Is Delayed Then? Seems So

Internet and Wall Street rumblings are pointing to a report in a Japanese newspaper which states the PlayStation 3 launch has been delayed until early November.

While nothing has been confirmed as of yet, The Nihon Keizai Shimbun reported today that the delay is due to Blu-ray copyright protection technology which has yet to be finalized, according to Dow Jones. As The Nihon Keizai Shimbun is a Japanese publication, the speculated release date presumably refers to the Japan launch. If the report is in fact true, it could mean that the U.S. won’t see the PS3 until 2007, giving the Xbox 360 two holiday seasons without competition from Sony, although Nintendo is expected to launch its Revolution before year-end.

The unconfirmed news comes one day ahead of a PS3 briefing in Tokyo, during which Sony is expected to reveal details about the console’s pricing and launch date.
