PS3 not manufacturing

With less than three months before launch and demand expected to be phenomenal, Sony has yet to start producing PS3's, admits SCEA president Kaz Hirai. "We haven't started manufacturing yet," he says. "Some of our ops guys were actually just in China, and also in Japan just reviewing the [production] lines and everything else. But they are, again, preparing as we speak to get the manufacturing going. We've not announced and we haven't set really a specific date to say, 'As of this day we're going to start manufacturing.'" On a related note, Hirai has also told the press that the promised service for downloading PS1 games to the PSP should be out by the end of the year. Not all titles will be available, in part because the PSP is missing some of the PS1's controls.
