Despite rumours that a Taiwanese company called Asustek had started assembling PS3s last month, word from Sony is they have still not started production, despite only being 3 months away from a worldwide launch.
If they do end up hitting shelves in November, expect the consoles to be in short supply.
On the positive side (?), insiders from Nvidia who are supplying the graphics chip for the PS3 say the latest demos from the hardware are ‘astonishing’. We may expect to see what they are talking about at the Games Convention that starts this week in Leipzig, Germany.
