As games officianados ticked the final few days off their calendars before the release of the SONY PS3, the company has some bad news for its British customers.
The release date of the PS3 in Britain, set for March 23rd 2007, has had to be postponed due to 'technical difficulties'.
Tasaki Nakamura, the UK Head of SONY Operations, told a news conference in London:
"There is a compatibility problem. The British SMTP server and the system's Akinawa box are incompatible.
The only way to get around this is to either use a different server - we suggest DF2x or CAKE - or to reinstall the giblets using Tripemaster. This will give extra tripostulation, and provide the ability to wonk your gadzooks to better effect. This was tried in our Tokyo lab with a Stylophone 620K, and we can now receive Borgfix on Pento without having to reroute through the Kransler tube bypassing the Space/Time Continuum.
Rerouting the cable through the Ionobox will always cause the heatrod to blow the mainload over the backhatch, and cause it to seal up.
What has to be done in that case, is connect the boggler to the P4z gribbler, remembering to protect your system with an anti-fungal cream, and then insert the spontax into socket D, thereby ensuring resistance to any Parallax interference."
The company have said their technicians are working on the problem. They should have it fixed by the time the PS4 is due to empty parents' pockets next Christmas.
