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.
