Jack Tretton, chief executive of Sony Computer Entertainment, has once again re-stated Sony's European launch plans for the PS3, confirming that its on schedule for March.
"We're equally strong in all three markets. We can't afford to sacrifice any one of them," Tretton said.
This news follows speculation that the console will suffer further delays - although such has already been dismissed by Sony's Euro boss as being "without foundation."
Even if the PS3 does indeed launch in March, the Xbox 360 will have already been on sale in PAL territories for a year and four months. There's much catching up to be done.
