Microsoft does a happy dance

It’s hardly unexpected, but Sony’s finally admitted that the global launch of the PS3 isn’t going to happen. Instead, the US and Japan will get vastly reduced shipments in November and Europe won’t get any (officially, at least) until March. Which leaves Xmas wide open for the price-reduced Xbox 360 which, in the next few months, will get Gears of War, F.E.A.R, Just Cause and the latest editions of various sporting and racing titles. And then of course there’s Halo 3, which will no doubt appear just before the PS3 ships.

  1. Microsoft’s comment in MCV made me chuckle: “We know how challenging it is to pull off a global launch, so it’s not surprising that Sony has backed away from their previously announced, launch plan due to the unproven technology they are trying to pack in to their console.”

    Heh. You can hear the smirk :)

  3. I don’t give a toss about the posturing of these two dinosaurs; all I want to know is, where’s my Wii?

    Ninty says: “Wii is on track to ship in Q4, Nintendo plans to ship 6 million systems to retailers around the world between its launch in the fourth quarter of 2006 and the end of its fiscal year on March 31, 2007.”

  5. So Microsoft isn’t going to have Xmas all to itself. I think the Wii may surprise…
