PS3 Delays

I just heard on the news that the PS3 is going to be delayed indefinitely due to copyright and technical problems with their BLURAY drive.... the segment was about 45 seconds long. Anyone else hear anything about this?

As far as I know it's being released in November anyway. How much more could it be delayed from then?

I couldve swore it was November, or the holiday season for quite some time!

Why the hell would they release it during spring anyhow!?!?!?!

Game Shares Rise After PS3 Meeting

By Kris Graft

Electronic Arts and Activision shares rose as Sony announced a worldwide simultaneous launch of the PlayStation 3.

ImageAccording to Reuters, game publisher shares rose upon the expectation that the PS3 will be available in time for the crucial holiday season. This would translate to PS3 software revenue for publishers during the important quarter.

P.J. McNealy with American Technology Research affirmed his "buy" rating on EA, and upgraded Activision and THQ's "hold" ratings to "buy" as well.

EA shares were up 1.7 percent midday on the Nasdaq, Activision up 4.5 percent, THQ up 4.6 percent, and Take-Two up 2.8 percent.

Standard and Poor's equity analyst Gary McDaniel told Reuters, "I am viewing this as good news."

I bet they are just saying this shit to get people talking. I am completely sure they have always planned on releasing near xmas. It doesn't make any sense to release it during the spring AT ALL.

From what i heard on AOTS today it is only delayed in Japan. it was originaly set for release here in the US in November and now they will do a worldwide release like M$ did with the 360 in November instead of just the US
