Its surprising though, given that the PS3 was delayed supposedly due to problems with the blu ray aspect of it, that there is anything on the console side that needs a fix.
I know we can't really believe anything Sony say these days, but the bluray drive was blamed for the delay in March.

"Sony says issues over the finalization of copy protection technology related to their Blu-ray disc drive is the cause of the delay."
That was the point I was making, sony must have had systems up and running a long time ago with or without a blu ray drive, so if it was ready in march apart from the drive then the console shouldn't be having these teething problems now, so I think it is another case of Sony being economical with the truth.but if that was the case, there wouldnt be any of these other issues would there..they would have had all this time to get it right, unless they couldnt do the whole job without the bluray drive?
