Sony has announced that the PlayStation 3 will not be released in Europe until March 2007, some four months after the original November launch date. Citing production problems involving the console's Blu-ray disc drive, outspoken Sony bigwig Ken Kutaragi insisted that it will still be released on time in Japan and North America, the company's main focus areas this holiday season. Kuturagi apologized, but reports of his fingers being crossed behind his back when he promised that the PS3 will still be released here on time here are unconfirmed.

Looks like Microsoft and Nintendo will be having a less stressful holiday season, at least as far as Europe is concerned.

This is it.

Xbox 360 will sweep up North America in the face of massive PS3 shortages.

Wii will storm Japan on the heels of the DS phenomenon.

PS3 comes in 3rd place all around due their own arrogance and stupidity.

Lesson: Even when you are #1, don't shit on your customers.
