Next Generation reports that Sony has admitted there may be a delay in getting the PS3 to market
. From the article: "Sony has told the media that the launch of the console will be delayed due to difficulties in finalizing the Blu-ray drive's specs. An unnamed spokesperson for Sony Computer Entertainment in Japan admitted that PlayStation 3 launch could be delayed. SCE said that if final specs were not finalised with the Blu-ray Disc development consortium, the launch of the console could be delayed."
I would have rather they come out and admitted this last month, when everyone realized this was the case, instead of denying it and looking unrealistic.
