Officials from Sony have issued a statement regarding the release of products that will use the company’s new CELL processor technology. According to Sony chairman Nonuyuki Idei, "We'll first focus on developing a successor console to the PlayStation 2. But incorporating the CELL chip into TVs will give us greater control in adding functions, so we'll concurrently pursue the development of a new game console and the incorporation of the chip into TVs. It just means that demand for TVs with computer-like functions is starting to emerge, and we are going to meet such demand.” The statement further indicated that the first CELL based products would be launched by March 2006, which considering Idei's comments would presumably mean the PlayStation 3.
