Where are the fanboys (well, besides Psychoace's lame attempt)? I'm guessing the delay doesn't have the least bit to do with DRM... it has far more to do withthe fact that Sony realizes the PS3 is a boondoggle that will kill a great product line and likely sink them in the process. Smart thing to do - delay the release and work as much cost out of it as possible, to minimize the damage. Sadly, the Playstation line is doomed, and was the minute they decided to put Bluray into it (and perhaps also because of their insistence on expensive proprietary tech like "cell" processors)... this action will only prolong the Playstation line a little longer. Ultimately, the console will see release when it is beaten to market by the other two rivals and probably still be twice (or more) the price. At least Sony won't be pissing off early BD hardware vendors - which is probably one reason BD players were getting pulled off the release schedules. A cheaper BD player that also happened to be a game system would definitely have alienated all of the non-Sony vendors in the BD camp, and must have caused a bit of alarm. Still, Sony is getting dragged under by the weight of its own arrogance. Their desire to use proprietary technology at every turn is hurting them, and in this case, killing them. Too much infrastructure, too high of a price for consumers - it's why Sony completely missed out on the MP3 player market, when their Walkman brand could have stolen the show; but Sony's stupidity mired them with ATRAC and Minidiscs. Sony's reliance on their proprietary memory sticks is another example - I know I'll never buy a camera dependent on anything but SD or Compact Flash. Honestly, why do they let retards run multi-national conglomerates, anyway?
