The PlayStation 3 will not make its way to Europe until March 2007.
In an official statement, Sony said the decision was made to push the launch to next year because of 'the delay in the mass production schedule of the blue laser diode within the Sony Group, thus affecting the timely procurement of key components to be utilised in PlayStation 3.'
The delay effects all PAL territories, which includes Europe, Australasia, Russia, Middle East and Africa.
The launch dates for Japan and North America will remain as November 11th and November 17th respectively.
In more depressing news, Sony has also halved its shipment forecast for 2006 to 2 million. Originally, the plan was to ship 4 million units worldwide by year end. However, the company still plans to ship 6 million units by the end of March 2007, presumably with a large number dropping in Europe.
