Sony CEO announces PS3 delay?

Exactly what did Howard Stringer, CEO of Sony say in his interview with Jill Goldsmith about PS3's release date? Well, apparently little that is directly quoted. Ms. Goldsmith interviewed Mr. Stringer about his life as CEO of Sony and Sony in general. Sony is much more than PS3. Ms. Goldsmith wrote about 2,000 words with little space devoted to PS3:

Now, electronics and games can take center stage, although major questions loom at those divisions as well.

Sony's new PlayStation 3 was widely expected to be introduced this spring, but will be delayed as the company fine-tunes the chips that are crucial to the success of the console's Blu-ray function.

The PlayStation 3 --- which is being called "the poor man's Blue-ray" --- is vital to Sony's plans because it plays Blu-ray discs as well as videogames.

Sony will roll out the PS3 by year end, in time for the holidays. If PS3 "delivers what everyone thinks it will, the game is up," Stringer boasts.

Notice the shortage of quotes? Ms. Goldsmith writes that PS3 will be out by the holidays - however, she does not quote Mr. Stringer. PS3 release date(s) have not been released.
