The release date hasn't been announced by Sony nor has the console design. I'm sure both will be announced and shown during E3 in June.

December is a silly month to launch a console. It'll be October or November.

October is to early, they'll aim for mid November, and then it'll be delayed and be "released" in December but they'll have low production volume since the lines aren't fully operating yet and most models are being hand assembled at the factories while the lines are being fully broken in and tested.

It' called learning from history, it's going to be the same thing with the xbox as well. it's how these launches work. it's called experience. I also know how the factories work. the production lines take a very long time to set up. And this is why cheap asian companies win most of the contracts. production costs in western countries can often be competitive with asian ones, especially when you factor in shipping and all that. However, Asian has dead cheap labour, this means that while they set up the lines and make them work properly, they can throw 1000 workers at the production to manually put the products together. it'll cost more than the line sure, but they can afford the loss in the start and they win the contract because they can get "production" up and running months ahead of western factories where doing that is unthinkable since pay is at least 10 times as much per man hour. I've worked in a factory that lost it's major contract just because of such a situation, new lines was needed. Our factory was by every standard a better choices, better quality control, experience with the products, made in the same country where most of the product will ship to. bt the asians they could have production up and running much faster. and our guys had to go down and help them set up the production line since they had no experience with that production line...

but lets assume history is inconsquental and this will be the first major product launch in history that is perfect ? ...
