PS3 to Launch in November in Japan?
Oh boy I've got sadening news for all of our Sony followers. I know I put a question mark behind this but this is almost as true as anything. I mean there is a lot to support this. Check out the Kotaku article on it: http://www.kotaku.com/gaming/top/ps3-japan-launch-delayed-to-november-160458.php Well they are basically saying that the PS3 has been delayed til November cause of once again Blu-ray. They state is as trying to protect it from piracy. This sounds very truthful. So saddening. So what does this mean? Well this means nothing good. This will put the PS3 at a very bad position. First of all this means that the launch will be over a year behind the X360 in most parts of the world. Secondly Nintendo has already promised that the Revo will be out in America before November and also in the rest of the world before 2007. So this gives the Revo and X360 a long time to get settled in with sales, market, and games. This is just saddening news cause this just puts Sony at such a disadvantage. All Sony had to do was release close within both launches and they could most likely keep their reign. But I think this fatal move will ensure that they will not reclaim first. I mean the system will be expensive. We know that. But wouldn't have been that bad if it was released earlier. But now as a customer you have to think if you want to wait for a system and also pay more money. Just doesn't have a good combo. This just is not a good move at all. This is the worst thing Sony could have done. So I think personally Sony's reign just might end cause of this mistake but once again we can only call this a rumor. So lookout for the official announcement in the coming days. And none of what I predicted might happen. But that's my take. So stay tuned Sony fans. Zucas
