PlayStationBB delayed

Failure to complete talks with nine broadband providers cited

Content and technical difficulties are holding back the Japanese launch of the PlayStation 2 online gaming service, PlayStationBB, Bloomberg is reporting. Sony had planned to roll out games, music and movies online to almost nine-million users as early as Monday, but incomplete talks with the nine broadband providers involved in the project have caused a hold-up. A spokesman for NTT Broadband Initiative mentioned "continuing talks" to Bloomberg, and none of the companies involved is willing to speculate on the completion date.
