Sony has confirmed that the multi purpose gaming console PSX will be released for the European market during the 2004. Sony should be demonstrating the unit at the CeBIT expo. However, it has not been confirmed that the displayed unit is the European version, or possibly the already released Japanese version of the product.
While the on-the-record comments shied away from full commitment, insiders privately confirmed that PSX will definitely release in Europe before 2005.
A press release is expected on the matter of release date for the machine in the next 24 hours, specifically to coincide with PSX's European showing at the monster German tech fair, running from March 18-24. It's still unclear whether or not SCEE will confirm the 2004 date this week or at E3 in May. Source: Gameindustry.biz
