Sony denies rumours of further PS3 delay for Europe

Reports are "categorically not true"

Sony has told 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."

I think they'd push back either the Japan or U.S. launch before they'd delay the European market "again". So, it's probably not true or else they could kiss Europe goodbye.

another delay would kill them.
