“I do know what’s going to be happening and I am – honestly – very, very confident about it.” When asked by one studio worker about suggestions of a delayed Euro launch, Reeves answered: “It is my job to match day and date with the US launch. I am doing my best to make that happen.”
But lips remain tightly sealed on prices and exact timings, and as the wait for firmer details goes on, Reeves said PS3 plans are constantly influenced by the demands of integrating new technology like Blu-Ray, while making sure both hardware and a decent array of software is available from day one.
And Reeves remains unconcerned by the head start Microsoft has with Xbox 360: “I think most people that will buy the first million Xbox 360s in PAL territories are also going to buy a PS3. That’s the type of people they are.
“Once it’s up to about the million installed base that’s when it’s all going to start.”
