Sony might be having a few problems with its forthcoming Playstation 3, which an industry deep throat claims is full of bugs and will not be ready for its March release date… The bloke claims that he had hands on experience with a prototype PS3 and it left much to be desired for a product that is supposed to hit the shops in a few months. Kotaku claims that Sony is also allegedly having trouble with the PS3 graphics engine.
the Inquirer – PS3 will be “late and full of bugs”
An industry insider who goes by the name Fishie (how very appropriate) says that he got some hands-on time with Playstation 3 games in Japan and wasn’t too happy with what he saw.
Before you start thinking that Fishie’s post is, um, fishy, he has earned himself a tad more credibility than the typical poster by reporting dead-on facts about the 360 a few weeks before E3. Back then he called the 360 titles underwhelming and said that while there may be some kickass stuff, most people won’t be floored.

Today I’ve got an interesting conversation between an in-the-know and a friend that occurred a few months ago.

…Friend mole tells us we should go take a look at what he calls the only footage of Playstation 3 code in motion. It’s for a game called Fatal Inertia and you can catch two bits of gameplay at GameSpot.
