Sony Corp said its PSX console, will have fewer functions than planned because the company ran out of time before next week's debut in Japan. Sony said he PSX will dub video at half the rate planned and won't play rewritable DVD's, recordable CD's, or MP3 music files. "We've had very strong demand from store owners," said Taro Takamine, a Sony spokesman in Tokyo. Sony is rushing to get PSX into stores as consumers receive winter bonuses and the year-end shopping season begins. PSX will help reverse Sony's profit slide in the past three quarters."It's a difficult call because if Sony delays, PSX won't contribute to a quick profit turnaround. On the the other hand, recovering lost faith takes a long time."
