Microsoft blames PS3 delay on "unproven technology"

Xbox UK boss Neil Thompson has told GamesIndustry.biz that Microsoft is not surprised Sony has "backed away" from its commitment to a global launch for PlayStation 3.
"We know how challenging it is to pull off a global launch, so it's not surprising that Sony has backed away from their previously announced launch plan, due to the unproven technology they are trying to pack in to their console," he said.

I hope he knows that the launch is still on for US and Japan. He should reserve one if he can, and see what PS3 can prove. Until then we wait...

"We know how challenging it is to pull off a global launch, so it's not surprising that Sony has backed away from their previously announced launch plan, due to the unproven technology they are trying to pack in to their console," he said."

Very much TRUE

"In addition, Thompson continued, Xbox 360 offers "a growing and innovating online gaming service, fantastic entertainment capabilities, optional HD-DVD capability and a great value price".

Very much true

No need to receit or recycle comments. We have been saying this from Day 1.

He does not know everything about Sony so he cannot judge their technology. Only Sony knows. Give Sony 2 years and everything will be back in place. Sony will rule the market again. Because it is brand name, that brand name that is extremely charming. ''PlayStation'' A brand name that is attractable to consumers. An acceptional name brand for an acceptional console! The only challenge that is going to be for Sony is trying to beat their old record. Over 200million units shipped and over 190million sold! The PLAYSTATION 3 will once again live up, to the hype. The future is almost here, with The PLAYSTATION 3!

PS3 ultimate, all I can say is wow. Your happy people are going to buy the PS3 because of it's label. Well I'm sure glad their not buying the best console for their needs and wants, and perhaps games??? You know games the stuff you play on consoles.

THE MASS MARKET DOESN'T BUY CONSOLES ABOVE 250$

This goes for the 360 as well. In a year the price will be below this and the better run business will win the market share.

I find it ironic that microsoft says this when I am on my 3RD 360. The first two have died on their own. To me it seems that microsoft has pushed out "unproven technology." I know not everyone has had problems, but the PS3 is a proven as the 360. Or in this case it is as unproven.

Brand name with exploding batteries. wait till the lawsuits follow and compensations.

In the wonderful world of technology, every new tech has issues. When they say unproven you idiots they refer to Brand new technology for the fools that do not know how to comprehend an article.

Blue-ray is unproven Idiots. You'' see the PS3 will have its issues after launch remember I said it here first. If it wasn't for the useless bluray system it would be here by now. So this Christmas belongs to the Wii60. Hell I would of had one already if it wasn't for Blue-ray.

Ofcourse nothing is proven untill it gets out to the masses and is played with. Ofcourse the CPU/Video chip was unproven in 360 and proved to over heat not that I have had any issues, so it must be a small percentage out of millions. I played 20hrs yeaterday.

blue ray probably will have some problems. i've yet to have any issues with my 360, although i've heard of a few people having issues, i don't necessarrily know anyone first hand though. i'm sure the case will be the same with blue ray...nothing too serious, well sony fans should only hope. cause if they take another hit like the supply shortages a lot of people are gonna start to hate sony. personally i could care less, just an observation.
