Breaking! Sony Delays Something! Again!

Sony confirmed today on its official UK Playstation site that the anticipated November launch of the Playstation 3 will be pushed back to March 2007 in Europe, The Middle East, Australasia and Africa.

The company is citing production problems with the blue laster diodes needed for use with the Blu-ray Disc drive as the primary reason for the delay.

“With so many different territories and languages to support, the PAL market is the most complicated region in which to launch the system, and is therefore the most pragmatic choice to bear the brunt of the shortage of components. Of course, this fact does not make the decision any less difficult to make.”

So Sony took a look at its options and thought, “Ok, we’re screwed, but how can we avoid being totally fucked?” Unfortunately for the millions of eager gamers in the European Union, they were the answer.

The Playstation staff insists that the November launches in Japan and The United States will remain on schedule, but there’s still plenty of time between now and then for something else to go wrong.
