Analyst calls out Sony on 2007 PS3 launch

PlayStation 3

Sony keeps on saying they're gonna push that there PlayStation 3 out the door in Spring of 2006, which we're all hoping for somewhere near as much as we actually think it's maybe just wishful thinking. But in an Electronic Arts earnings call memo, a senior Wedbush Morgan Securities analyst predicted Sony may delay the console until 2007, and instead ride that $100 slim PS2 into the sunset until then. While we're positive this would be a certain form of corporate seppuku for Sony, we wouldn't exactly put it past them to hold out, especially considering the hard PR front they've crafting around this undeniably unwavering faith in the final product we consumers will be so blessed as to own.
