It's official now, the PlayStation 3 has been delayed from this Spring to early November.
But the game unit of the world's second-largest consumer electronics maker stressed that the new consoles, when launched, will be made available in countries around the world at the same time.

'I would like to apologize for revising the release date, because standardization talks on new Blu-ray technology and high-definition multimedia interfacing -- the key features of the next generation console, have taken more time than we had originally thought,' SCE President and CEO Ken Kutaragi told a press conference.
Sony expects to ship 6 million units by the end of March 2007.
