Sony denies further PS3 delay

'Categorically not true'.

Sony has told GamesIndustry.biz that reports the PlayStation 3 could be delayed in Europe until May next year are "categorically not true."

The rumours emerged after Spanish gaming site Meristation claimed Ken Kutaragi had warned that there could be a shortage of PS3 stock in Japan and North America - leaving European consumers with an even longer wait.

But according to a Sony spokesperson, "Any reports of a further delay to the launch of the PS3 in Europe are categorically not true.

"We are still fully committed to a March 2007 launch date. Ken Kutaragi has not done any media briefings since the Tokyo Game Show, and the story is not true."

The PlayStation 3 was originally due to launch this November in Japan, the US and Europe, but last month Sony announced that the machine won't arrive here until March. The company plans to ship 6 million PS3 units globally by the end of the 2007 fiscal year.
