Sony CEO Howard Stringer seems to have let the cat out of the bag regarding when PS3 will finally launch throughout Europe. And it looks like April.

Speaking to Howard Stringer was asked what the goals were this year for PlayStation? His response? "I think it's 6 million units by the end of the quarter, worldwide. And then we have got the European launch in April, which is very important to us."

Could that be the biggest slip-up by Sony yet? A date of late March has been doing the rounds lately but what's a week or two in the grand scheme of things? Regarding the launch games, he added, "I think we have 20 games out there. I assume we're going to increase the number of games."

Sony Europe is sticking to its guns of a March launch with all other talk just "speculation".
