Blu-ray production problems to delay PS3?

Following yesterday's very real news of Sony's legal woes regarding its controller design, another stick could potentially be tossed in the PlayStation 3's spokes in the form of copy-protection issues for the Blu-ray format, if a report from Japan turns out to be true. According to Japanese business newspaper Nihon Keizai Shimbun, the console's launch could be pushed back into November in Japan. That means that, if Sony follows its previous strategy of staggering the launch by geographical region, the console wouldn't hit U.S. shores until sometime in 2007.

Sony is holding a press conference regarding the PS3 during the early morning hours tonight, and we'll pass along any and all launch-related info here tomorrow.
