August 29 - PS3 Troubles

Will the PS3 even make it onto the shelves? Sony think so, the rest of the world will believe it when it sees it. First we were hearing that Sony planned to ship 4million units by the end of this year, then we heard that they couldn't (surprise, surprise!), now we're hearing from silicon valley, that they can't create enough MLCCs (Multi-layer Ceramic Capacitors) for all of Sony's consoles. This is very bad news for Sony, and comes just days after their share price dropped hugely because of battery recalls, their share price has dropped even further with this news, and is expected to drop still more when Sony spends 30billion Yen on new batteries for all of the latops that they've recalled lately. The Korean rechargable battery market is booming meanwhile. Sony just got pushed into the deep end. Let's see what happens.

UPDATE: Wired News are just as unhappy with Sony as we are at the moment. I recieved an e-mail containing this link from a reader.
