Euro delay rumours quashed by major retailer

Despite persistent games industry speculation that the European PS3 launch may be subject to further delay, online retailer has told GamesRadar that it has full faith in Sony achieving its March date.

"We're confident that Sony will meet the March release date,"'s senior games buyer, Gian Luzio, told us. "There are always scare stories about slippage but Sony has been reliable in the past and until we hear differently from Sony directly we believe a level of stock will be ready for launch."

Meanwhile, during a presentation at the Consumer Electronics Show 2007 in Las Vegas, Peter Dille, vice president of marketing for Sony America (SCEA) also reconfirmed that Sony Europe (SCEE) were still on track, "They're [SCEE] set for March release and looking forward to it," he said.

Furthermore, Sony UK has maintained its stance in a recent phone call, with no new comment issued except a reiteration of David Reeves' "still on schedule" statement originally given in December 2006.

there is not a single fact in this article supporting Sony making the expected March release date. It is pure speculation. Come up with something more concrete next time before you attempt to call it news.

They probably started to built a good amount of consoles for Europa. They don't need to send every console made to the US since they can't manage to sell everything. I'm pretty sure they won't miss Europa launch date.
