Of course, Sony is known to push their stuff back, but it still sounds good: here's an article concerning their release dates, and their online service, known as HUB:

As long as they have a smart way of connecting a PSone and PS2 memory card for their backwards compatibility option, I'm SO picking on up the day its released.

I never buy a new system teh day it comes out. The PSX and PS2, and now the xbox 360 all have taught me that bugs are bad.

I'm going to wait till maybe spring 2007 when they have some decent games out before I make my purchase.

I bought a PSP the day it was released, and i was lucky enough to get one without the burned pixel problem. It really only depends on how much it will cost to buy one, and how many retailers in my area (east of Vancouver) have stock. I've heard of people waiting almost three months PLUS for Xbox360 systems, after preordering them from EB Games in Metrotown.

However, Fraser...I do see where you're coming from. What sells me is a strong opening line up, and if there are some decent games available, or if backward compatibility is available out of the box, I'm more than likely willing to pick one up.

The PS3 was originally slated for spring, but I wasn't surprised in the least to hear it get pushed back. But it isn't like Sony's about to hurt financially over this, thanks to the dynamic lineup from Square Enix. Kingdom Hearts II and Final Fantasy will more than tide over some gamers while the PS3 (and Metal Gear Solid 4) are given their finishing touches.

Yeah if the Lynch stuff is anywhere near correct, Sony is so screwed. Either they are gonna lose a ton of money with every sale or this thing is gonna cost way more than people are willing to pay. I think I'm just gonna be content with my 360 and a Revolution when it comes out.

All this "Sony is doomed this time" stuff is overblown, but at the same time it does present a few problems they are going to have.

I did pick up a 360 just recently, I waited until I could get a deal on it (core system, Call of Duty 2, and NBA2k6 for 350 bucks - tax included). I have no problem selling it down the road if the Revolution or PS3 is more appealing to me, but for now I feel fairly confident that I made a decent choice.

What I don't understand is why people think Sony will automatically blow everyone away again. They have momentum now, but if they really screw this up - be it with a release date that doesn't happen until 2007 or a system that costs way too much, it wouldn't take much for Microsoft (and hopefully Nintendo) to knock them down the ladder a bit. If HD-DVD winds up knocking Blu-Ray out of the picture (not likely I know, but it does seem a little more possible than it did at first), then Sony is really in trouble.

Personally, I can't fathom Sony somehow not getting the system out in time for Christmas at a price of $500 or less. It would be a huge mistake...and even $500 is pushing it.
