Sony freezes PSX Production


According to Japanese weekly magazine Shukan Gendai, Sony's HDD/DVD Recorder and PlayStation 2 media system PSX stopped production in the beginning of April.

In response to the magazine, Sony Electronics' public relations spokesman confirmed that production has ceased, and that production will resume depending on how the current inventory sells.

"Depending on demand [of the PSX], we will resume production when necessary," said a spokesman. "We are currently in the process of adjusting the inventory and assessing when to resume production."

Although Sony projected that one million PSX's would ship by the end of 2004, Japanese market analysts were skeptical, with some saying that the system was a "publicity stunt" that would "sell well for a month or two."

Detuned before its launch, it was rumored that SCE's game division and Sony's Blu-ray lacked synergy, contributing to the failure to implement features such as MP3 compatibility at the product's launch in December.

Sony however rectified most of those issues in February, restoring most of the initially announced functions.
