Asustek Computer, one of the world's largest producers of computer components, has reportedly begun to ship Sony PlayStation 3 game consoles to Sony Computer Entertainment Inc. The fact that the consoles are being manufactured means that the hardware specs had been finalized and the launch will take place in mid-November.
The Chinese-language Apple Daily and Commercial Times newspaper reported late on Tuesday that Asustek Computer started shipments of PlayStation 3 (PS3) game consoles in small volume in the beginning of July, according to DigiTimes web-site. According to a report, about 200 thousand component sets were shipped to Asus in June, which means that the company is in position to build 200 thousand game consoles. It is also said that in July the Taiwanese builder will receive higher amount of component sets for the PS3, while in September and October the company will get "more than one million [component] sets.
If the hardware specs have been finalized and production has begun, can we please see the finalized hardware specs?

Start making them early.
I never doubted that the PS3 would launch this year!! it HAS to!! sony can not afford to give xbox another holiday shopping spree.so weather its ready or not, or in its best shape possibly, its coming this year!!
