Sony is in a heap of trouble. First the exploding batteries, and now it looks like that could turn into a cascading problem. Our beloved blood brothers at Kotaku point us to a quote where Sony Computer Entertainment America co-chairman Jack Tretton backpedaled on the ship date of the PlayStation 3, saying that the game console's widely-reported rollout on November 17 is not set in stone:
"The honest answer is it's more of a target. Clearly we've had production issues.''
This can't be good. The company's bleeding cash, making us wonder if the PlayStation 3 might be put on the back burner for a while.
