Play2 Euro bow delayed

Sony afraid supply unable to meet demand

Sony has delayed the European bow of its next-generation PlayStation 2 vidgaming console to Nov. 24.

Device, which features higher-quality graphics, DVD-playing capabilities and connections to the Web, had originally been skedded to bow in 17 countries in the region at the same time as its U.S. rollout on Oct. 26.

Sony said it was worried it would not be able to build enough hardware to meet demand for both the U.S. and European markets. Sony Computer Entertainment said it plans to hit each with 3 million units.

3 million sold

New vidgaming system has sold more than 3 million units since its March bow in Japan.

Sony said it plans to release more than 40 games in time for Christmas. The new console will cost around $446 in the U.K. and $402 in Germany, but just $299 in the U.S.
