Default PS3 in 2007: BBC hooked, lined, sinkered on PS3 launch date

According to this BBC News coverage of the Digital Life Expo in NYC several weeks ago, the PlayStation 3 is going to launch in 2007. Hereís the quote: ďBy launching its new Xbox 360 22 months ahead of the PlayStation 3, itís hoping itíll be able to win over the minds and money of gamers.Ē

Itís said with such certainty, weíre wondering what their source is for this information. In all likelihood, the Beebís source is none other than the head of Xbox UK, Neil Thompson, who recently predicted that the PS3 might not launch until Spring 2007 in Europe. Even if itís true, itíd be marketing suicide for Sony officials to utter the numbers ď2007Ē because itís in Sonyís best interests at this moment to encourage gamers to forego Xbox 360 purchases in the hopes of an imminent PS3 launch.

The quote occurs at moment 1:07 in the linked-to video clip.

This has to be a joke a right? Has any other source giving any creedence for them delaying launch by another year?

Sounds like a premature april fools day joke. Maybe they will launch on april 1st 2006.

....On the bright side, if you can call it that... if it IS true, then some of us may even be able to afford the PS3 by 2007.

Considering how the X-Box launch seems like it will drag out for 6 months, I will believe anything now.

It is all about the hype and little about getting the product into consumers hands.
