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
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.

Awesome, I just got eductated... thanks for that.
I had never heard of anyone bothering to use ATRAC outside of minidiscs but it is indeed supported on all Sony mobile music devices from the MD era forward.

Well, my Sony Discman(I bought it because Sonys used to be rugged, well designed pieces of consumer electronics) was one of the first discmen to support mp3 cds. It also supported "Atrac3Plus!" discs instead of mp3 discs.. And many earlier Discman players supported atrac3 discs but not mp3 discs.. Sony really tried to make it a competitor to mp3.
The player came with software to transcode mp3s to atrac3s and burn them to CD.. but when I did that, half the tracks wouldn't play on the discman. So I went with mp3(Even though it supposedly gave worse battery life on that player, and made for slightly less songs per disc) and was happy with it until one errant fall onto a resin floor killed the discman.
