Sony PS3 back on for June!
Following on from Bob Crabtree's news story on HEXUS.lifestyle, that the PS3 may be delayed, Sony have today come forward to deny the speculation.
Financial analysts Merrill Lynch's report on the potential delay of the PS3 caused a drop in Sony shares, and suggested that the console may not appear in Japan until the Autumn.
It appears that the initial speculation on the delay was due to Tetsuhiko Yasuda, managing director of Sony Computer Entertainment Asia, comments at the Taipei game show in Taiwan. He told reporters that, "the company is looking to be 100% ready when it begins selling the highly anticipated console."
Merrill Lynch have obviously not done their homework, their report states that the bill of materials used in the PS3 totals $900. However, if you add up the bill of materials presented, it actually adds up to $800.
Sony have been quick to try stopping the speculation getting out of control. Kei Sakaguchi from Sony issued a statement saying, "the plan to release the video-game console in Japan this spring has not changed."
