Man, are these guys in trouble….

I think I have already used this intro on a previous Sony post, but….

Just when you think you have heard all the bad news, here comes trouble.  Sony has already had enough problems this year to sink a less established company.  First the exploding batteries, and now it looks like that could turn into a cascading problem.  They can get enough Blu-Ray components to build the player/recorders, which leads to the ongoing saga of the PS3, the one product that they have bet the farm on.

Sources at Kotaku point us to a quote where Sony Computer Entertainment America co-chairman Jack Tretton backpedaled on the ship date of the PlayStation 3, saying that the game console’s widely-reported rollout on November 17 is not set in stone:

“The honest answer is it’s more of a target. Clearly we’ve had production issues.”

This can’t be good.  With the company bleeding cash, is the PS3 destined for the back burner for a while, and if so, how will that impact Sony’s overall health and credibility?
