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.

In response to #3, Japanese consumers would buy a turd in a box if it said Sony on it. Their fervor for all things Sony and their snubbing of non-Japanese hardware is hardly indicative of anything regarding the 360, other than making it more apparent that MS should just let Japan go. Focus on the US, get that system everywhere. Make like Apple and get on every freaking show possible. Give them away to celebs with big mouths.

M$ should release some gibberish made-up 360 capabilities and see how long it takes Sony to gin up some PR about how the PS3 does the same thing, only somehow better.

Glad someone finally said it. Sony = Japanese = major league nationalists i.e. racists, meaning - Sony would buy anything Japanese because it was Japanese and therefore the most superior thing on the planet. They don't buy the 360 because it says MS... if it said Nintendo or Sony, it would have sold 1 million in a couple weeks.
