| I'm saying that from the answer that the CEO said to IGN, they did have to see what Microsoft is doing so they did the opposite and that is announcing no more Always online and they are supporting games but yet they didn't announce the release date so that makes me a little worried about a delay |
It's funny because this very recent article contradicts with what you're claiming. http://www.guardian....-redirect=false
"There's an interesting backstory on that. I guess, dating from about our February event, there had been questions about what our online policy would be. And I have to say that we were slightly perplexed, because we had no intention
of changing from a model that I think has served us really well for several platform life-cycles. And then, of course, it was really the actions of others, and the reaction coming from consumers, which led to more speculation. So we felt that with E3, and Monday night's press conference, it was a really good opportunity to set the record straight. But there weren't any changes that we'd been considering."
A business plan is a long-term plan. It's difficult to make anything last minute.
As to why they have not given the actual release date yet? Jack Tretton said that there's still a lot of strategic and tactical evaluation to be done, on the number of units needed to be manufactured this year.
