Sony PlayStation 3 Delayed in Europe

Filed under: — By Aviran Mordo @ 7:49 am

Sony’s upgrade video-game console PlayStation 3 will be delayed until March in Europe, but will go on sale in November as planned in the U.S. and Japan, the executive in charge of the project said Wednesday.

The sales delay is caused by a problem in mass producing a key component in the Blu-ray disc laser part of the machine, the next-generation successor to Sony Corp.’s hit PlayStation 2, Sony Computer Entertainment Chief Ken Kutaragi told reporters.

“We decided to focus on the Japanese and U.S. markets,” he said at the gaming unit’s Tokyo headquarters. “I am so sorry not to be able to answer to all the expectations.”

The company is still sticking to its initial global target of shipping 6 million PlayStation 3 machines by March 2007.
