Was reading over my April OXM issue and it covers in detail the timeline for the 360 launch. I don't have it infront or me but I believe the developer systems went out in August. The final machine came off the line and went into testing early september. And by early october when the shipments were supposed to be leaving china via ships they realized they were going to launch in the US with only 300,000 units.

So I think my estimate of july is pretty close to when prototype machines of the 360 show'd up. Dev systems should ship shortly after, then they should be mass producing systems in september, shipping in October and selling in November.

So it's possible if sony has a system functioning at E3 there would be almost no trouble launching in november. But if not it should be possible within 3 months of a prototype being completed and tested. July 31 is kind of a deadline for them, if they don't have a working system ready for mass production they can probably be looking at a shortage much like MS had during launch or pushing the launch back.
