Ray Maguire, managing director of Sony Computer Entertainment UK, has expressed his disappointment at the news that Europe won't be getting the PS3 until March next year.

Speaking to our sister site, GamesIndustry.biz, Maguire said: "We are extremely disappointed at news of this delay. We can truly empathise with everyone who was looking forward to PS3's imminent release.

"We will however be working tirelessly to ensure that the March 2007 launch is the biggest and best in the company's history," he added.

News of the delay broke this morning after Sony issued a statement revealing that the PS3 will no longer launch in PAL territories this November, as planned.

However, the console is still slated to launch in Japan on November 11, with a US release to follow on November 17.
