Blu-ray ambitions cost Sony
Speaking to UK games website Eurogamer.net on the 'semi-official' ThreeSpeech PS3 blog, Sony chief Phil Harrison confessed that Sony 'overreached' by including Blu-ray technology in their next-generation console. Speaking on the component shortage which resulted in the PAL region delay, Harrison said that "that's the price you pay for adopting brand new, leading-edge technologies that will be future proof. We will resolve those issues - we are already catching up."
He added that the design of the product wasn't a concern, it was simply a case of ramping up production sufficiently to meet demand. "Today, it looks like a very difficult situation - but in the weeks, months and years to come, this will pale into zero," Harrison assured confidently on the negative publicity the delays have sparked pre-launch. The big cheese added that HDMI support on the 20GB console was always a possibility, it was simply 'brought forward' as a result of consumer demand and higher sales of high-definition television sets.
