Sony's PS3 gets to get a wider audience in late March

Sony's PlayStation 3 will be made available to a larger audience starting on March 23 of this year. While PS3 fans in Japan and the United States have been had access to the console since mid-November 2006, consumers in Europe, Africa, the Middle East and Australia were left in the dark.

Sony announced back in early September that the European launch of the PS3 would be delayed until March 2007 due to production problems with blue laser diodes. Now that the problems have been worked out and Sony has settled into its grove with PS3 production, it's time for the rest of the world to enjoy Sony's bundle of Blu-ray fun.

Over one million units of the 60GB PS3 model will be available launch -- the 20GB model will be introduced later this year. Sony also states that over 30 games will be available for launch including headliner Resistance: Fall of Man.

All of this gaming goodness will come at a hefty price though -- especially for those in the United Kingdom. The 60GB PS3 will retail for £425 ($842 USD) in the UK while the 20GB model will retail at £350 ($694 USD) when it is launched later in the year. Potential customers in Australia have it a little better as the 60GB model will cost $999 AUD ($790 USD
