Looks like Sony are going to miss yet another Christmas with their PlayStation 3 console - in Europe at least. This time it appears to be unable to source sufficient components to meet world-wide demand and so is going to concentrate on the key markets of America and it's home region - Europe misses out again, but then if Europe were to pull it's finger out maybe we'd make some of our own products!
Not only is Sonys position in the gaming market under threat from continued delays but also their hope of getting BluRay established as the next defacto standard high density (HD-DVD) format. Having been on the receiving end of Sony Betamax and numerous attempts by Sony to 'go their own way' (I have a Sony MP3 player that only plays the proprietary ATRAC format) I personally think that's a good thing! I love Sony products, but they win not because of proprietary formats but despite them, which can only work for so long.
What's your view on this? Are you going to hang in there or opt for the XBox 360, or maybe even the Nintindo Wii console?
What do you mean "maybe even the Nintindo(sic) Wii"...
The Wii is the only console showing any kind of interesting development for the next gen!
Both the 360 and the P3 are more of the same, with more polygons.
