Sorry BOTS, all you have to play now is Queers Of War 2 and that won't move so many consoles as expected, specially because of the new feature.

thus far. I guess Sony didn't really need to pour tons of money into advertising. I wonder what else they know? Glad to see the Japanese sales rebound too. Good news all the way around for PlayStation fans [PSP,PS3,PS2].

Ps3 looks set to take the industry to the next level starting with gt prologue. I was a doubter but you can not argue with the master piece that is gt prologue. A picture speaks louder than words.

i knew the sales would pick up with the Yakuza 3 bundle

but they didn't pick up THAT much- the PS3 used to sell over 30k a week

will probably sell like 100k a week when FF launches (ok perhaps an exaggeration but you get the idea)
