Sony’s decision to delay the launch of the Playstation 3 console from spring to November has given Microsoft’s Xbox 360 time to gain a bigger foothold in the gaming market.
Microsoft knows when it rules the roost, and they know how to play for keeps. They have publicly stated that the third installment of their most profitable franchise, Halo, will be strategically released to compete with the Playstation 3. Industry insiders have confirmed that Halo 3 is already completed and ready to ship, but Microsoft was holding off until spring. Now it appears that Halo 3 may as well be vaporware, because in all likelihood Microsoft will delay its release until November.
