You'll get it when it's done

Sony officials have confirmed that the Playstation 3 will indeed make it out before the end of the year, but that's all the company will say. There's no word on the launch date, no word on pricing and no word on if they've decided to get rid of the boomerang controller.

At the 2006 Taipei Game Show, Sony was only able to muster up three mock-up PS3 consoles -- maybe Josh Robinson was on to something...

The PS3 will lag the Xbox 360 more in market share if Sony delays launch of the PS3 to the end of 2006, the sources said, noting that Microsoft predicted global shipments of its Xbox 360 will reach 4.5-5.5 million units by the end of June.

Maybe they ran into some *cough* heat *cough* issues. Quite a few sites question how the case design of the PS3 can possibly handle the (expected) heat produced by this "living-room supercomputer".

I can't remember where I read it, but I do remember reading that the PS3 will utilize a liquid cooling system. The PS3 is being designed as an "always on" device so a liquid cooling system would have greater lifespan than a traditional air cooling system.

liquid cooling = heatpipe (same as on a CPU or GPU)

Sony calls their PC's with heatpipes "liquid cooled", of course I believe MS did the same initially with the 360. Could very well be wrong.
