Reuters is reporting that Sony might delay the release of their PlayStation 3 video game console.
A Sony spokesperson stated, "We're aiming for spring, but we haven't announced specific regions." The company is currently waiting for the final specifications on some of the technology it is using in the PS3, such as that related to the Blu-ray DVD drive and to input and output video and sound.
"We're waiting for them until the last possible minute, but the launch could be pushed back if they're not decided soon," the spokesperson added.
Reports have also surfaced that the PS3 might initially approach $900 per unit to produce.
The PS3 will be powered by the "Cell" chip, which is significantly more powerful than Intel Corp.'s Pentium 4, the most common chip for today's PCs and existing game machine processors. The console will also feature a super-powerful graphics chip, a built-in Ethernet port for high-speed Internet access, and Blu-ray.
