It’s been a few days since we’ve come across any negative news concerning the PlayStation 3 and, for a while there, we at TheFeed were beginning to worry. We certainly don’t want to disappoint the Sony “fanboys” by not doing our part to “hate on” their favorite console.
So, luckily for us, we came upon this story at 1UP.com. In it, Sony bigwig, Phil Harrison, admits that the company has, “overreached in production of the Blu-Ray component.” As you’ve likely heard by now, issues with the production of the diode used in the Blu-Ray lasers have led to shortages that have caused Sony to lower the number of PS3s available at launch.
“We will resolve those issues,” Harrison stated. “We will continue to catch up on the production, and as you know, we haven't changed our full-year forecast of six million units.”
Of course, unbiased readers of TheFeed know that we objectively cover all of the next-generation consoles. We’re just as excited about the PS3 as any other platform. In fact, we can’t wait ‘til 2009 when we’ll actually be able to afford the thing.
In the meantime, we’ll have to make due with watching G4’s PS3 launch coverage on Friday, November 17 at 6:00 PM ET. We’ve got three full hours of coverage courtesy of Attack of the Show!, X-Play, and Cheat!
