Welcome to the "ump-teenth"
edition of the "PS3 might be delayed" saga, this time per Forbes
. Regarding the issue of when the console will launch, the author writes: "Sony's last word on this
remains spring 2006, but almost nobody believes it — at least not for the North American launch — because of
a history of delays for previous products. Thanksgiving looks to be a better bet, at least to Evan Wilson, an analyst
with Pacific Crest Securities."
The article suggest that Sony staying mum on details only hurts the
PS3's chances of success. In Sony's defense, doesn't staying quiet about a launch date and price keep its competitors
on their toes while keeping consumers anxious for the product a la Apple Computer?
