Sony Still Plans '06 Launch For PS3 Although Other Details Remain Scarce

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.

RE: Not excited by the PS3

1) I'm pretty sure that Sony's early mp3 type music players only supported ATRAC. Sony only started including MP3 support because nobody wanted to use ATRAC. Sony would have loved to convert the world to it's standard, but nobody went along.
2) I'm pretty sure the PS3 is still not available in Japan either.
3) If you are trying to imply that the Japanese market has not bought xboxes is because they are discerning consumers I think your logic is flawed. The Japanese are very brand loyal. The PS3 could be total crap and they would still buy more of them then xbox.
4a) Ok, so you are saying that the PS2 sold for about the price of a stand-alone DVD player when it came out. So using your logic, should we expect the PS3 to cost $1000.
4b) You're right propriatery is not the right term for Blue-Ray. But Sony is the company pushing the standard, and they have the most to gain if it becomes the de-facto standard in HD. They are using the probability that 20million units will be sold to ram the technology down our throats.
Oh, and one thing I forgot to mention before. How about the rootkit fiasco. Sony is not the company I want controlling the technology I buy.
