An anonymous user writes to let us know that Sony have announced
(can't link directly to the lame Flash site, but if you click on News you'll see it) that the PlayStation 3 release date in Australia and (less importantly) Europe has been pushed back:
Sony Computer Entertainment Europe (SCEE) today announced that it would revise the launch date of its PLAYSTATION 3 computer entertainment system in the PAL territories of Europe, Russia, Middle East, Africa and Australasia from 17th November 2006, as previously announced to March 2007.
They've also confirmed
that the release date for the US and Japan is unchanged. Production delays are cited as the reason for the delay.
Given the plentiful availability of the Xbox 360 and the release of some big new titles (Dead Rising!) and the still-on-track Wii, it seems like this holiday season is going to be a Sony-free zone.
