A Sony spokesperson has told GamesIndustry.biz that the latest rumours to emerge regarding a definitive PS3 release date, firmware updates and day one add-ons are "pure speculation".
As reported on Sony's "semi-official" blog, Threespeech.com, the Internet has been rife with rumours that PS3 will launch in Europe in the first or second week of March - with some claiming that Sony is aiming for a release on the third day of the third month.
But according to a spokesperson, these suggestions are "pure speculation" - as are rumours that the PS3 will launch alongside the new Sing Store music service and the HDip camera. "We have not announced a date for Sing Star PS3 or the camera," the spokesperson said.
There have also been suggestions that European PS3 models will launch with a firmware update which introduces features such as multi-tasking and a PSP remote play option. But according to the spokesperson, "We haven't confirmed what the UK model will ship with."
The spokesperson declined to comment on rumours that only the 60GB model, and not the 20GB version, will be available in the UK, and that it will cost GBP 425 or less.
However, speaking to GamesIndustry.biz sister site Eurogamer TV back in May, Sony UK MD Ray Maguire did suggest that a GBP 425 price point was likely. Around the same time, one retailer was only taking orders for the 60GB model whilst awaiting a final decision from SCEE.
