Sony PlayStation 3 to Launch Globally in November
TeamXbox is reporting that Sony has officially pushed the PlayStation 3's release date to early November for a launch in Japan, Europe, and North America; approximately a 6 month delay from their original plans. Sony claims the delay is with the finalization of copy protection on their Blu-ray disc media.
Hmm, I bet Microsoft is a little frustrated now seeing as how they didn't need to rush-launch their Xbox 360. They could have taken an extra 6 months to do things like add in an HD-DVD drive and perfect their buggy backwards compatibility. At least this means the Xbox 360 will be the only next gen-system on the market for a year total, akin to the PlayStation 2 from the past generation.
